Phil Jackson took to Twitter near the end of March, and he's unleashed a flurry of tweets over the course of the past two weeks, clogging our timelines with everything from cryptic messages, to weird promotions for AOL and just a wealth of basketball observations.

Now he's flirting like a high schooler via Twitter, giving us all hilarious images of the 67-year-old Jackson tossing out a booty call to Jeanie Buss, his long-time girlfriend and fiancé.

@philjackson11 @krambis Good work so tonight PJ / Rambis! #FinalFour #Wolverines #Cardinals…

— Jeanie Buss (@JeanieBuss) April 9, 2013

To which he responded:

@jeaniebuss what's up girl?

As he and Kurt Rambis were simultaneously live-tweeting the NCAA Championship Game, Jackson got an attaboy from Jeanie and decided it was time to give her a shout and whatever else may follow up a "What's up girl?" from a dude that age.

After seeing it, Twitter gave him a collective thumbs-up.

Now you're just showing off. RT @philjackson11: @jeaniebuss what's up girl?

I'm just happy that Jackson has picked up Twitter so quickly that he's able to throw together an Internet shout-out to his girl after just a few weeks of tweeting.

The only thing that leaves me horrified is if Jackson thinks he was actually sending her a private message, and some other, rather racier tweets might find their way through.
