JACKSONVILLE, Florida (AP) — Tiger Woods is now on Twitter.

Returning from a two-week trip to Asia and Australia, Woods posted his first tweet on Wednesday: “What’s up everyone. Finally decided to try out twitter!”

The Twitter account actually was launched in June, the name — “TigerWoods” — reserved about a year before that. The previous three tweets were to announce a new twitter page, website design and Facebook page.

The first tweet from Woods came at 11:08 a.m. local time. Woods had just over 90,000 followers then, and within an hour, he already had added some 10,000 more.
