Metta World Peace has a direct message for Kobe Bryant: Don't stop using Twitter during games!

Yesterday, KB24 announced that he will no longer be tweeting during games after all the hoopla that surrounded his tweets during Game 1 of the Lakers/Spurs playoff series. But Metta wants him to reconsider. He revealed that he enjoys seeing the Black Mamba tweet during games and wants to see him continue to do it.

"Kobe should tweet for Game 2 the whole time, every possession," he said after the Lakers practiced yesterday. "Critique us, criticize us, chew us out. I'll tweet him back. I'll direct message him."

Only one problem: MWP doesn't actually follow Kobe on Twitter.

"I don't follow him," he said. "I don't follow Kobe because all I follow is four people. I follow the Dalai Lama and I follow a couple other people. But it's easy to follow Kobe. Just go online and [search] 'Kobe Bryant Twitter' and you'll see what he says."

Well, you'll see what he says after the game. Because, as of right now, Kobe still won't be tweeting during games. Sorry, Metta.
