With one simple, sarcastic comment, Tony Stewart joined social media and tweeted Friday evening.

“Ok so here it is,’’ Stewart tweeted from his account @TonyStewart, “I'm doing my part to combat global warming because now that I'm officially tweeting, hell is freezing over!’’

Stewart-Haas Racing confirmed that it was indeed Stewart tweeting.

Stewart had 186,419 followers when he tweeted. Within about 25 minutes, his list of followers increased by about 7,000 as word began to spread.

Fellow drivers were quick to react to Stewart’s action.

Kurt Busch tweeted: “@TonyStewart this is an epidemic like babies in the coach lot. First @DaleJr now you.’’

Tweeted Brad Keselowski: @TonyStewart welcome

Earnhardt tweeted a thumbs up to Stewart’s tweet and added in a second tweet: “Stick around man, you'll like ths place.’’
