George Zimmerman joined Twitter under the name @TherealGeorgeZ. GZ’s first tweet was a link to eBay where folks were invited to bid on his first painting at auction.



The account, which was confirmed to be authentic by the former defendant’s brother, Robert Zimmerman, Jr., has mostly focused on Zimmerman’s burgeoning art career, along with retweets of supporters and Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

But over the last few days, Zimmerman has started sharing more of his opinions about the paparazzi-style news operations that have been following him around Florida. One the one hand, he’s grateful for his unlikely fame.


Follow George.
