paulpierce.jpg Leave it to the man nicknamed "The Truth" to truly connect with fans via Twitter, the now famous social networking application.

Celtics star forward Paul Pierce recently "tweeted" out a free ticket offer to fans, and actually showed up and came through.

As far as Pierce's actual "tweets," the All-Star gives updates and even asks the lucky fans who showed up and got the freebies if they enjoyed themselves.

Here are the Truth's tweets from @paulpierce34:

"first 5 people who meet me at the garden in the players parking lot entrance at 445 with my jersey on get free tickets password is truth"
"to tomm game vs okc"
"Change in schedule first 5 fan wit my jersey on at players parkin entrance get tik to todays game
"Time to meet is exactly 430 passcode truth"
"aight on my way to arena b there at 430 with my jersey players entrance free tiket to game only got 5 left hurry up passcode is truth"
"To all my twitter homies that came to the game hope u enjoyed"
I'm sure Pierce has a lot more "twitter homies" now.
