After taking over the @NikeBasketball Twitter feed last week, Kobe Bryant has finally decided to become active using his own handle. Earlier today, Kobe sent out the first tweet on his verified account, stating that the "antisocial has become social."

Kobe is already an avid user of Facebook, currently 'liked' by more than 14 million people. As of now, Kobe has less than 50,000 followers on Twitter. Likely that number will increase exponentially over the next several hours.

Give Kobe a follow now at @KobeBryant.

Yes, that's the Twitter blue bird with a mamba tongue.
