Tony Romo has joined Twitter, and early indications suggest he’s someone worth following.

More than 100,000 people have already done it and his second post went viral.

Romo is clearly having fun in his Twitter debut, reflecting back on the Cowboys’ playoff loss to the Packers and Dez Bryant’s controversial non-catch.

“Looking back on it...it was a catch :),” Romo wrote with a picture of what most believed was a catch.

That tweet had generated more than 21,000 retweets in a couple hours since being posted, and more than 18,000 favorites.

That proved to be the pivotal play to end the Cowboys’ season, and remains a hot talking point months later. The Packers and Aaron Rodgers ran out more than four minutes on the clock afterwards.

Romo’s first tweet simply referenced his number, “9,” and got more than 14,000 retweets.

Romo has already gained more than 100,000 followers on his official account, @tonyromo.
