Thomas Gibson has hopped on the Twitter train in an effort to stay more connected to his fans following his firing from Criminal Minds.
The actor took to social media earlier today to thank those that have stood by his side during the drama surrounding his departure from the hit CBS show last week.
"I wish I could thank each of you for your friendship & support. I love Criminal Minds and I'm disappointed by what's happened," he wrote as his first tweet.
"I'm here on Twitter so we can stay connected in the days to come, and talk directly with each other. The support you show means the world to me and my family. This is not an ending, but a beginning as well. Thank you all."
The 54-year-old actor added a similar sentiment on his Instagram page, saying, "I'm here now and also on Twitter…I really appreciate your support."
