Will he? Won’t he?
We’ve wondered for years whether Kobe would actually join Twitter. Well, today he finally did!

Kobe’s wife, Vanessa, shortly after confirmed that Kobe had indeed started tweeting via a post on her Instagram account.
“I don’t know if I have the time available to really give the fans the attention that they deserve,” he said.
Bryant has been active over the past year on Facebook but said he appreciated how Twitter enabled him to interact with fans.
“You’re able to get a lot of great feedback about the game but also about the product as well — what they thought, what they like, what they didn’t like,” he said. “It’s the best way to gauge reaction.”
Well, he’s here now! It’s going to be interesting to see what he has to say…
