Nike gave control of their Twitter handle to Kobe on Christmas day, having first hinted at the takeover the early in the day.
After leading the Lakers with 34 points (including eight in the fourth quarter) in a 100-94 victory over the Knicks, Mamba sent out the following tweets.
As well as a couple candid photos of his post-game ice bath.
Perhaps the best tweet of all was the declaration of Twitter usurpage (yes, such situations deserve made up words).
There has been no official word as to how long “a few days” will actually last.
One thing that you can count on: like a whisper in the wind, the Mamba disappears into the night—leaving just as he came, in total control.
He dresses in style. He takes over Twitter in style. He leaves in style.
