Shaq Becomes First Future Hall-of-Famer To Retire Via Twitter

[blackbirdpie url=”http://twitter.com/#!/SHAQ/status/75996821360615425″]

Its official: Shaquille O’Neal has retired after 19 years of dominating the NBA. The most eccentric basketball player in the past two decades, wasn’t going to give you some sob story about how much he loves the game and how big of a pussy he is (Brett Farve). In true Shaq Fashion he announced his retirement over Twitter so all of his fans could hear first. He also is the first person I saw use the new Social Media platform Tout. After some research Tout is in beta version, and its purpose is to post your videos directly to Twitter. If I’m wrong about that come find me sipping Malibu Bay Breezes on the Beach next to Shaq.
