Twitter’s most recent press article in the New York Times can be viewed below. The article includes mentions of Gulbis and O’Neal and their enthusiasm for twitter, as well as their hesitations.

Other celebrities who have caught onto twitter besides Gulbis and O’Neal include Saturday Night Live’s Jimmy Fallon, former NFL star, Jerry Rice, as well as actor, Luke Wilson and Tour de France champion, Lance Armstrong.
