NBA star Kobe Bryant finally decides to reach out and touch his fans on Twitter!
Los Angeles Laker’s star Kobe Bryant fans can now feel a little closer to the usually anti-social athlete via Twitter.
The point guard sent the first tweet from his account on Friday.
About 270,000 people followed his verified account, @kobebryant, within a few hours and he was up to 365,000 late Friday night as the Lakers played the Clippers.
Bryant, who briefly took over NIKE’s basketball account, says he enjoys connecting with the fans “with no filter.”
Heat star LeBron James has 6.8 million followers, the most of any NBA player.
