Kobe Bryant has not been with the Twitter Universe for long, but in the time that he has been tweeting he has grown quite the following (over 3 million). It's understandable too. When you are the best at what you do people are going to what a piece of you even if it is just clinging to your every word on social media.
That much was proven when his in-game tweeting after he was hurt caused waves an again over the weekend when he un-followed his former teammate Dwight Howard, which he recently had more to say about as well as the potential release of Metta World Peace, and what he thinks the team needs to do.
It is understandable that after Howard left that he would be unhappy with the big man, but many criticized him for being childish by un-following him. However, if you listen (read) why he did it--well, it's kind of hard to argue with him.
I wish d12 the best honestly. I just find it hard to follow players that wanna kick my tea...
