Shaq retires

So I was in my office this afternoon when a tweet from Shaquille O'Neal popped up on my TweetDeck.

Curious, I clicked on the link. The video lasted no more but 30 seconds. At the end I chuckled at the fact that Shaquille O'Neal, one of the greatest NBA players of all time, just announced his retirement through a home video he posted on Twitter.

The times we live in.

I wasn't at all surprised by the announcement, considering the season he had. But what made it even more amusing to me was that another hour passed before I saw a tweet from a traditional news organization reporting that Shaq announced his retirement.

The times we live in.

Here's a good read from the Boston Globe.
