Twenty-five year since he famously evaded Los Angeles police in a white Ford Bronco, O.J. Simpson has once again captured America's attention.

Now 'The Juice' is loose on Twitter, making his debut on the social media platform Friday night, one day after the 25th anniversary of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman's murders. A cruel coincidence, perhaps.

It's been nearly two years since Simpson, 71, was set free – after spending nine years in prison stemming from an Oct. 2008 armed robbery conviction in Las Vegas – and now he's is ready to share his sports takes, fantasy football advice, and personal testimonies with the world.

So there's no confusion about his identity between his and parody accounts, Simpson has exclusively tweeted videos of himself, irrefutable evidence that the tweets are, in fact, coming from the real O.J.

After three videos, Simpson has mostly established what he intends to do with his Twitter account, amidst making several menacing statements, like subtly threatening to "deal with" counterfeit accounts, and saying he's "got a little getting even to do" with no further explanation.

"Hey Twitter world. This is yours truly," Simpson tweeted in his first Twitter video. "Now, coming soon to Twitter, you'll get to read all my thoughts and opinions on just about everything. Now there's a lot of fake O.J. accounts out there, so this one – @TheRealOJ32 – is the only official one. So it should be a lot of fun. I've got a little getting even to do. So God bless. Take care.

"Hey Twitter world," Simpson began another video on Saturday. "You know, for years, people have been able to say whatever they wanted to say about me with no accountability, but now I get to challenge a lot of that B.S. and set the record straight. More importantly, I'll be able to talk about everything, especially sports, fantasy football and even politics. But for now, let me just say to my fellow fathers out there, Happy Father's Day and God bless."

If there's any tendencies to be gleaned from his first three tweets, it's that Simpson likes to shoot his videos in the daytime, address his audience as "Twitter world," and the tweets come out at night.

"Hello Twitter world. This is yours truly," Simpson said in his Sunday video. "You know this is my first venture into the social media world, and it's amazing, especially how quickly they can put up counterfeit sites. Anyway, we'll deal with that."

"My life has always been involved in the sports world, and I suspect as the weeks goes on, that's pretty much what we'll be talking about," he continued. "But once in awhile I'm gonna go off topic and talk about something else, and this is one of those times."

Simpson went on to speak highly of the late Robert Kardashian, one of his defense attorneys in his 1994 murder trial, and dispel longtime internet rumors alleging he'd once had an affair with Kardashian's widow, Kris Jenner, which, as the rumor goes, led to the birth of Khloé Kardashian.

"She's not mine," Simpson claimed Sunday.
