Mike Tyson joins Twitter, tweets about vegan energy

Mike Tyson recently joined Twitter and used the platform to mention his new vegan lifestyle. Tyson tweets, “It's almost been nine months with this vegan stuff. It brings some great energy.”

Iron Mike's switch to a plant-based diet was originally revealed during a 90-minute interview for the series "CenterStage" earlier this year. In the August edition of Details Magazine Tyson revealed that the vegan diet gives him powerful energy explosions and he is willing to go the rest of his life without eating a Baby Ruth candy bar.

The former heavyweight champion’s new show Animal Planet's “Taking on Tyson”— where Tyson introduces viewers to the competitive world of pigeon racing—is set to debut in early 2011.
