*If you thought Trayvon Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman, was gonna drive his truck – with his koo-koo girlfriend and their guns – off into the mountains, you’re wrong.
If anything, he’s about to get even more high profile.
After making slightly over $100,000 for last week for selling an “original” painting of the American flag on Ebay, he’s back in the news this for joining Twitter. What’s next, an offer from Hollywood? Well, we super seriously doubt that’ll happen, but you never know.
The news of Zman joing the social media site came after a fan questioned the authenticity of the Ebay account.
“Thanks for your question,” Zimmerman wrote. “Yes, this account and my twitter @therealGeorgeZ belong to me, George M. Zimmerman. I have received this question a lot so I posted a picture of me holding my painting with the hope that would clarify any confusion. Your Friend, GZ.”
If you’re pondering whether to “follow” him, as an example, here’s a taste of what he’s tweeted since Dec. 16: Bible scriptures, messages of appreciation to his supporters, retweets from “fans.” And checked this out, he even retweeted a message about missing Michigan medical student Teleka Patrick.
According to MadameNoire, so far he’s attracted 2,331 followers. However, Twitter has yet to verify his account.
