Today may be Kobe Bryant’s first official day with a Twitter account but the Lakers star has used the social networking site in the past. A couple of weeks ago Bryant took over Nike Basketball’s and talked to fan about the Lakers disappointing record, icing injuries, and how he’s greater than Santa Clause.
Santa has nothing on the Black Mamba. #COUNTONKOBE to deliver a W when needed.

Kobe gathered 290,000 followers after just six hours on Twitter but he still has a long way to go to top his rival LeBron James. The Miami Heat star is a frequent Twitter user and has close to 7 million followers.
