Tuesday, January 22 starting at 4 p.m. ET, Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) will live tweet during NBA TV’s re-air of his infamous 81-point game against the Toronto Raptors. During the game, Bryant will tweet about his performance during that night, chat with fans and more. To join the conversation, use the hashtag #COUNTONKOBE.
This should obviously be a lot of self-aggrandizement and arrogant self-promotion. And a lot of sycophants telling Bryant how great he is. The ego has landed. Kobe has close to a million Twitter followers despite joining just a couple weeks ago. He follows 45 accounts most of which have verified check marks on them. His first follow is soccer star Alex Morgan.
