Weird Times in Shaq Land: "Shaquille O'Neal is not retired, but currently plays for the Phoenix Suns." -- correction in today's New York Times. "The jabbawockeez didn't have to highlight shaq's big ass, but they did. the fact that a sick group like them put the lime light on someone else, who isn't a professional dancer, shows a lot about them." -- comment on YouTube. "To all twitterers , if u c me n public come say hi, we r not the same we r from twitteronia, we connect" -- Shaq on Twitter

Twitter-Shaq baffles me; he writes like an 11 year old.

I have to admit, I follow Shaq on twitter, and he's probably my favorite twitter-er. (Not that I follow any other celebrities.) It's clear that he's genuinely enthusiastic about the service, plus he cracks me up just about daily. The writing is atrocious but it's a pretty intimate glimpse into his life at times. Other times I can't even decipher what he's saying.

Mostly I just like it when he makes up works like "tweeple" and "shaqsomnia".

I have a hard time understanding Shaq in interviews because of how he mumbles. It's fitting that he's also hard to understand on Twitter.

His sense of humor is great, though.

I also enjoy reading Shaq on twitter. Cracks me up. Like misskaz, it appears to me that he actually enjoys using the service.

I liked Shaq before this, but his interest in the meat-space v. cyberspace thing makes me like him even more. Strangely, Jason Richardson is now following me on Twitter even though I don't follow him. I'm totally going to block him. LOL1

Shaq is awesome.

Followed him for about 15 minutes on Twitter then unfollowed him. He makes my fucking head hurt. Could tolerate it if it wasn't ALL CAPS!

OMG! Shaq met Jason Statham and Mickey Rourke!

Is it wrong that I just want to follow Phelps and tweet "BONG!" at him?
