O.J. Simpson launched a Twitter account with a video post in which the former football star said he's got a "little gettin' even to do."
Simpson confirmed the new account to The Associated Press on Saturday, saying in a phone interview while on a Las Vegas golf course that it "will be a lot of fun."
"I've got some things to straighten out," he said.

One man died and three people, including an off-duty police officer, were wounded Friday night after a fight and shooting that sent shoppers running for cover at a Costco in Corona, California, police said.
Police responded at 7:45 p.m. to reports of four people down at the store, at 480 N. McKinley St., said Corona police Lt. Jeff Edwards.
Details about what led up to the shooting were not immediately released. But Edwards said it was an altercation that escalated to a shooting.
After a half-century of disappointment, even Mother Nature didn't dare spoil the celebration of St. Louis' first-ever Stanley Cup championship.
A morning downpour fizzled to a light rain by the time the parade began Saturday, and the sun popped out just as a rally was starting before a massive crowd on the grounds of the Gateway Arch.
The Blues ended one of sports' longest championship droughts on Wednesday by beating the Boston Bruins 4-1 in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, the first title for a franchise that joined the NHL 52 years ago. Fans poured into the city for the celebration. There were no immediate crowd estimates, but local leaders' expectations of at least a half-million people appeared to be spot on.

A United Airlines plane got "multiple flat tires" and skidded off a runway at Newark airport on Saturday, prompting a temporary ground stop and causing minor injuries to some passengers, the FAA and the airline said.
The ground stop was lifted by 3 p.m., but the airport was operating with only limited capacity, according to the Port Authority. The NTSB had asked that the plane stay where it was stuck on the runway until investigators arrived.
United Flight 627 from Denver International Airport landed on the runway at 1 p.m., then skidded off the pavement and got its left main landing gear stuck in a grassy area, according to the FAA.

After a weeks-long trial filled with emotional testimonies, chilling revelations and graphic photos, the jury reached a verdict in the Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz murder trial.
All five defendants were found guilty of murder in first and second degree, as well as conspiracy and gang assault charges.
The first verdict was announced against Jonaiki Martinez Estrella, who delivered the fatal blow with a kitchen knife that ultimately killed Guzman a year ago next week.
Authorities say an 11-year-old armed with a machete thwarted a three-person home invasion in North Carolina.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office said in a news release Friday that the boy was home alone in Mebane when a woman knocked on the door. About the same time, a man entered the home by breaking a window, grabbed the homeowner's pellet gun and forced the child into a bedroom closet.
The child got a machete and struck the intruder in the back of the head. The man kicked the boy in the stomach and in the side of the head.

At least eight juveniles were taken to the hospital after reporting feeling sick from eating an unknown plant from a garden at a home in the Bay Terraces neighborhood in San Diego, California.
San Diego Fire-Rescue Department Battalion Chief Salaz told NBC 7 the children were having a party on Mesa Park Lane and ate something that wasn't food.
Some of the children at the home reported feeling sick. Another child at a home nearby, who was at the party before, also called 911 reporting similar symptoms.
An impossible par from the rough. An improbable birdie from a divot.
If Gary Woodland can handle whatever comes his way this weekend as well as he did Friday, he might be holding a trophy at the end of the U.S. Open.
Woodland brought his power game to the majors once again, shooting 6-under 65 to head into the weekend at 9 under and with a two-shot lead over Justin Rose.
The 65 matched the record for a U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, California — a number previously shot by Rose on Thursday, and Tiger Woods 19 years ago.
A holiday that is spreading across the U.S. and beyond, Juneteenth is considered the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States.
It was originally celebrated on June 19, the day that Union soldiers in 1865 told enslaved African Americans in Galveston, Texas, that the Civil War had ended and they were free.
Celebrations include parades, concerts, and readings of the Emancipation Proclamation. This year, Juneteenth will also feature the first congressional hearing in more than a decade on reparations for slavery.
Here's a look at the holiday and its history:
A Brazilian judge on Friday absolved the man who stabbed then-presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro in his torso last year, citing his mental illness and ordering him held indefinitely in a prison mental facility.
Adélio Bispo de Oliveira has been in police custody since Sept. 6 when he was accused of stabbing Bolsonaro while he was campaigning in the streets of Juiz de Fora, a city 115 miles (186 kilometers) north of Rio de Janeiro. The blade pierced the candidate's intestine and put his life in danger. The attacker was beaten badly by Bolsonaro supporters after the stabbing.
Police said Bispo confessed to the attack and Bolsonaro went on to win the presidential election.

The isolation ward for Ebola patients is a tent erected in the garden of the local hospital. Gloves are given out sparingly to health workers. And when the second person in this Uganda border town died after the virus outbreak spread from neighboring Congo , the hospital for several hours couldn't find a vehicle to take away the body.
"We don't really have an isolation ward," the Bwera Hospital's administrator, Pedson Buthalha, told The Associated Press. "It's just a tent. To be honest, we can't accommodate more than five people."
Medical workers leading Uganda's effort against Ebola lament what they call limited support in the days since infected members of a Congolese-Ugandan family showed up, one vomiting blood. Three have since died.
President Donald Trump on Friday blamed Iran for attacks on oil tankers near the strategic Strait of Hormuz, but he also held out hope that implicit U.S. threats to use force will yield talks with the Islamic Republic as the Pentagon considers beefing up defenses in the Persian Gulf area.
A day after explosions blew holes in two oil tankers just outside Iran's territorial waters, rattling international oil markets, the administration seemed caught between pressure to punish Iran and reassure Washington's Gulf Arab allies without drawing the U.S. closer to war.
"Iran did it," Trump said on Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends." He didn't offer evidence, but the U.S. military released video it said showed Iran's Revolutionary Guard removing an unexploded mine from one of the oil tankers targeted near the Strait of Hormuz, suggesting Tehran wanted to cover its tracks.

The recent deaths of several tourists in the Dominican Republic and the shooting of former Red Sox slugger David Ortiz have raised safety concerns among those planning to visit the island.
But fallout to the country’s heavy tourism sector so far hasn't led to a slew of canceled trips, according to some industry experts. And a snapshot of the overall impact on tourism in the Dominican Republic won't be clear until the government issues its next report in the fall.
Local government authorities have promised they’re working with U.S. authorities to investigate the recent deaths of four U.S. tourists in a resort in La Romana and in Punta Cana, while saying the cases are “unrelated and isolated.”
President Donald Trump said Friday that "of course" he would go to the FBI or the attorney general if a foreign power offered him dirt about an opponent. It was an apparent walkback from his earlier comments that he might not contact law enforcement in such a situation.
Trump, in an interview Friday with "Fox & Friends," said he would look at the information in order to determine whether or not it was "incorrect." But he added that, "of course you give it to the FBI or report it to the attorney general or somebody like that."
Earlier in the week, Trump had told ABC that he would consider accepting information from an outside nation and might not contact law enforcement.
