101k followers already.

I wonder how he was able to secure the name @kobebryant tho -- undoubtedly someone has had to have registered that by now, right?

Re: Kobe Bryant Is Now On Twitter

They probably made others change their names to allow Kobe to have it. But yeah, over 100k followers in less than 12 hours. Impressive.

Not sure about twitter, but for example if you are a famous person then other people are not allowed to take www.famouspersonsname.com. There used to be lots of good opportunities to make money cybersquatting, but that is not allowed. Seems like twitter would have the same legal policies to avoid litigious types.

He was at 4k when he tweeted his first tweet and got verified 3 hours ago. He's nearing 204K now... Will he reach a million by tipoff tonight??

Edit: Just checked back and he's at 228K now!!

Re: Kobe Bryant Is Now On Twitter

I always respected Kobe for not falling into this. At least he didn't pick a stupid handle.

I'll make a twitter account when Charles Barkley does.

He is at almost 330K now.

The popularity of Twitter is amazing. Go on his twitter account, and hit refresh on your browser every second or so. His total "followers" jumps by 10 to 13 followers per second. No shit.

This will surely improve things in the #Lakers locker room.

Thrilled he didn't go with @blackmamba.

Good work by them posting that photo, but I don't even buy into them almost coming to blows in the first place.

Nah, it was bullshit.

1. None of the 1,572 Laker reporters in L.A. picked it up on the 1st.
2. The Daily News is a perpetual rag.
3. The reporter quoted a "league source." Whatever the **** that is. Don't reporters ever bother to confirm their sources anymore?
4. The Daily News is a perpetual rag.
5. The Daily News is a perpetual rag. That isn't even good for toilet paper, as they use an ink that rubs off...never mind.

Re: Kobe Bryant Is Now On Twitter

I do understand the non-confirmation of sources. Cite a source and that source's access gets compromised and you lose your source. Not to imply that's always the reason. I'm sure quite often writers are either using shitty jokes of a source, or making it up altogether. But yeah, I'd think either that local CBS guy that got into it with Dwight, or the other guy who D'Antoni thought was a Cleveland reporter would've run this too.
