LONDON - Since captivating the world with his groundbreaking Olympic trip to London, Oscar Pistorius' life has seemed like an extended victory lap.
More than 230,000 Twitter followers have been given a glimpse into a life of fast cars and luxury holidays as the hero was feted by an adoring public. The "Blade Runner" has reveled in the fame that came from becoming the first amputee sprinter to compete at both the Olympics and Paralympics.
Among dozens of tweets in recent weeks, there are only a scattering of references to the girlfriend he is now accused of killing earlier Thursday.
Quoting a tweet from Reeva Steenkamp on Dec. 6 — "Wondering what my stalker is up to? Kinda miss him lurking around 2nyt" — Pistorius replies: "Heard he is taking a water break with the boys!;)"
