Gabby Douglas goes on tweeting mission

Gabby Douglas said she woke up at 6 a.m. the day after winning the women’s gymnastics all-around and ‘‘went on a tweeting mission.’’

Douglas also googled herself, reading all the headlines and scrolling through the photo galleries of her gold-medal winning performance on Thursday.

‘‘I googled ‘Gabby Douglas’ and everything popped up. People tell me this is very big news and it’s not hit me,’’ said Douglas, who wants to use her new celebrity status to meet Usain Bolt and Serena Williams before the Olympics are over.
