Giants ace Tim Lincecum is finally on Twitter. He sent out his first tweet yesterday and it was to congratulate U.S. soccer player Clint Dempsey.

"Just want to say congrats to you and the team on a great job and making the U.S. proud. So pumped for you guys."

He also tweeted former teammate Cody Ross, now with the Boston Red Sox. The Freak's Twitter handle is just his name - Tim Lincecum. He already has tens of thousands of followers.
