George Zimmerman Is On Twitter

Zimmerman confirmed the account on his eBay listing for his original painting. His brother Robert Zimmerman Jr. also confirmed the account.

1. First, George Zimmerman created an eBay account to sell an “original painting” that sold for $100,099.99. Now, he has confirmed that he’s joined Twitter.

He did so in a section for questions on his eBay post.

2. Q: Hi. I was wondering if this account belongs to real GZ.


A: Thanks for your question, Yes, this account and my twitter @therealGeorgeZ belong to me, George M. Zimmerman. I have received this question a lot so I posted a picture of me holding my painting with the hope that would clarify any confusion. Your Friend, GZ

3. This is the photo he posted and his account, @TheRealGeorgeZ.

8. He tweets and retweets supporters.

10. He dispenses joy and emoticons.

15. But Zimmerman also courted controversy by posting the license plate of someone he says was following him.

“Owner of this vehicle is pseudo media. Harassing me at the Sheriffs office today. Get a clue, I still wont talk 2 u.”

16. He gets into it with critics and called this guy stupid.

17. He was really upset about people following him.

19. But he appears to be trying to be more zen.

21. He retweeted support from someone who alluded to Martin being uncivilized and violent against him.

22. Zimmerman’s comments on Twitter and eBay are the first time he has publicly commented on being tried for the killing of Trayvon Martin outside of Fox News.


Q: A true winner is someone that figures out how to make lemon aide from lemons. I contributed to your legal defense fund. I am truly sorry our government run liberal media and justice department persecuted you they way they did.

A: God Bless you. You have nothing to apologize to me for. The system is broken, an innocent man should not spend one second without his God given liberty, solely because a small sect of uneducated loud mouths. We must fix it. If we can’t fix it together, then we owe many people a sincere apology. Your Friend,

24. When Zimmerman announced he was painting, he said the activity allows him to stay inside. He may be looking to do this after repeated run-ins with police after he was found not guilty.

25. He was detained by police after allegedly pulling a gun on his estranged wife. She decided not to press charges. He then reportedly choked and pulled a shotgun on his new girlfriend. She also decided she does not want him charged.

26. But any media hoping to hear more from Zimmerman now that he is commenting publicly look to be out of luck. Except Sean Hannity.
