Simple but cool story here. When a couple of curious Tweeps who wondered if @THE_REAL_SHAQ was really the real Shaq saw his Tweet about eating at a local Phoenix diner, they decided to go to the restaurant and see for themselves.
Sure enough the real Shaq was there, and while figuring out how to approach him he Tweeted, “I feel twitterers around me, r there any twitterers in 5 n diner wit me, say somethin.” So they did. They nervously approached him and asked for an autograph and picture, which he happily fulfilled.
Another cool thing: apparently Shaq tipped close to $200 on $20 worth of food.
Later that day Shaq Tweeted, “To all twitterers , if u c me n public come say hi, we r not the same we r from twitteronia, we connect,” to which his Phoenix Suns teammate Steve Nash (@the_real_nash) Tweeted, “Diesel, 5 n diner has great chili and milkshakes but i know you’re on a diet so you had a salad!!”
