Dwayne Johnson on his 'Hercules' Twitter smackdown Published: July 9, 2014

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson says his Twitter call-out to join Team Hercules workouts gave the Internet a lethal elbow blow.

In an e-mail to USA TODAY, Johnson is big on hyperbole and short on apologies for the social media workout campaign he just concluded July 3. He began it last month posting the "most grueling" workouts used to prepare for the upcoming film Hercules.

"Twitter officially broke. Broke down. Side of the road. Turn out the lights, cause the party is over," Johnson writes of the #TeamHercules campaign. "Called the Twitter tow truck and had to tow it back to Silicon Valley."
