After serving a 9-year prison sentence for an armed robbery in 2008, OJ Simpson is officially a free man. Although he was issued a maximum sentence of 33 years, Simpson was granted parole and an early release following a parole hearing this past July. ESPN confirmed reports of his early morning release and like most things, Twitter went in with hilarious commentary.
Some Twitter users were tickled by his release while others were thrilled over the possibility of OJ Simpson joining Twitter. Check out some of the best reactions below.
