"ok, ok, i give. I am going to TRY twitter.....looking forward to getting back to the racetrack, INDY is a huge race, i cant wait!" -@matt_kenseth17
With just three tweets and 11 follows, Matt Kenseth has gained himself close to 3,300 followers on his first day in the Twittersphere.
His first tweet was retweeted over 30 times.
His third tweet was his a twitpic of football video game score on his PlayStation 3 (his Packers over the Bears by a 24-0 margin) with the following message: "Boy are these games getting realistic!"
So why did Kenseth decide to finally give the social media tool a try?
"Just because I told everybody I would never do it," Kenseth said Friday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Makes perfect sense.
"I was sitting around and I was like, 'You know, maybe I'll start for awhile and see what it's like," Kenseth said. "I can't guarantee how long I'll do it, but I figured I would check it out."
Kenseth called the decision a "time to get out of the dark ages."
Kenseth's current follows include a majority of fellow NASCAR drivers, a couple members of the NASCAR media and Green Bay Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
As for his future on Twitter?
"It's only been a day," he said. "So yeah, I'll stick with it for a little while longer than that."
