In the video, he tells viewers that this is the true account despite the number of fake accounts claiming to be him.
His Twitter account has not been granted the verified status with its iconic blue check mark.
A sportswriter with The Atlantic tweeted that he confirmed the account was genuine.
More than 100 thousand people have followed this new twitter account.
In the first-tweet video, O.J. Simpson says this Twitter account will feature his “thoughts and opinions on just about everything.”
As of Saturday morning the new account only follows six Twitter accounts. He follows his son, his lawyer, the aforementioned sportswriter for The Athletic, the NFL, USC football, and the official Twitter page of the Heisman Trophy Trust.
O.J. Simpson served nearly nine years in prison due to his participation in a Las Vegas robbery. The robbery focused on several pieces of memorabilia that previously belonged to him.
He did not serve jail time for the double-murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown-Simpson and Ron Goldman in 1995. A California acquitted Simpson of the crime after a year-long televised trial that captivated the nation.
