Did Shaq learn about it through Twitter? Add to ...

Did Shaquille O'Neal learn about pending move to Cleveland via Twitter?

That's what it looks like after a fan Tweeted the NBA superstar to ask about the trade shortly after the news broke late Wednesday night. Within minutes, Shaq replied "I didn't hear dat yet" to the fan.

The fact Shaq was apparently out of the loop prompted disbelief and e-laughter from his Twitter followers, and Shaq seemed to grasp the weirdness of the situation.

"I kno right," he Tweeted back.

Shaq is one of Twitter's most prolific celebrity microbloggers, and has garnered nearly 1.4 million followers. Through Twitter, he posts dozens of 140-character updates on what he's up to each day in addition to trading messages with fans and sharing pearls of wisdom (One recent example: "ONCE WE HAVE LEARNED TO LOVE, THEN WE WILL HAVE LEARNED TO LIVE ! and LAUGH.")
