In an ostensible attempt to repair his broken image, Tiger Woods sent shock waves through cyberspace with his first tweet:

Within an hour, Woods had picked up more than 30,000 followers. Later that day, the total rose to upwards of 143,000. Woods' agent Mark Steinberg told CNBC's Darren Rovell that Woods "has taken it upon himself to use Twitter to stay connected with fans." No small matter for the famously insular golfer.
