Joy to the world.

George Zimmerman is back on Twitter, thanking God for his freedom and promoting his original artwork.

Mediaite reported Friday that Zimmerman joined Twitter as @TherealGeorgeZ, and his first tweet, dated Dec. 16, is a link to a painting he sold on eBay:


It sold for more than $100,000.

The rest of his tweets are mostly of the "No, I'm the real victim!" variety. He spends some time tweeting about his haters, which includes a group he's dubbed the "pseudo media":

He retweets and writes fondly of his biggest supporters. Sean Hannity of Fox News is one of them:

He's showed his support for the embattled Duck Dynasty patriarch, Phil Robertson:

And then there are the Bible verses. Lots and lots of Bible verses:

And of course, Twitter is responding appropriately with the "follow" puns:

Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last July but hasn't managed to stay out of the news, because of two separate incidents involving his ex-wife and current girlfriend. On Sept. 9, police responded to a call from his estranged wife, Shellie Zimmerman, who reported that her husband punched her in the face and threatened her and her father with a gun.

Then, on Nov. 18, Zimmerman's pregnant girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, called the police to report that he had pointed a shotgun at her and broke her belongings after she asked him to leave her home.

Both women decided to drop the charges.

Sadly, looks like we'll see and hear more from this dude in 2014.
