After stress fractures in both of his feet forced him off ABC's "Dancing with the Stars," Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) expressed thanks to his fans on Twitter.

DeLay suffered the injuries in mid-September and left the show yesterday after three episodes. He tweeted:

My friends, I hope you had as much fun watching us perform as we did performing. It was a great ride. Thanks for your support.

DeLay has primarily used his Twitter account to promote his "Dancing with the Stars" performances. It remains to be seen if or how he will use it now.
