    Larry King went on a massive Twitter spree last night, from around 10:30 p.m. PT to 11:30 p.m. PT, that led many to believe the veteran news anchor was either the victim of a cyber hack or completely hammered.

    Both claims he later refuted in an Instagram video, saying, "I'm not drunk, haven't been hacked, and it's only eleven o'clock here."

    But the stream of consciousness that lasted for the most glorious hour produced some serious Twitter gems.

    King shared fun facts about himself.
