Shaq announces retirement via Twitter
Shaq, who has 3.8 million followers, kept things simple in his retirement tweet simply stating “im retiring” with a link to a short video message of the superstar announcing the news via Tout. This is an iPhone app that lets you send short video updates to Twitter. He also threw in the hashtag #ShaqRetires which is now trending on Twitter.
This is a good win for Tout, which may be competing against Twitter soon.
