We've seen all of our favorite athletes eventually get on Twitter and maintain some kind of relationship with their fans, except for Kobe. It all started when he took over Nike's Twitter account for a day. It drew instant attention and soon after, Kobe had his own account and everyone wanted to hear what he had to say. He live-tweeted games and posted pics with a weird watermark, and we loved him for it. #mambaout
Kobe and Twitter are a Match made in Heaven.
