Fans tune in to see latest tweets from Tiger Woods. What did he say?

Tiger Woods opened a Twitter account in June, but until Wednesday, it remained static. Woods' greeting to the Twitterverse? Short and sweet.

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.
