Tweet of the Day: Kobe Bryant [via Nike]

Nike gave control of their Twitter handle to Kobe on Christmas day, having first hinted at the takeover the early in the day.

Today, we have a special guest taking over the handle. Stay tuned. #COUNTONKOBE

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.

Santa has nothing on the Black Mamba. #COUNTONKOBE to deliver a W when needed.

14-14 not great but we are getting better. It's all about the journey #countonchallenges

As well as a couple candid photos of his post-game ice bath.

Not looking forward to it but my legs need it. Ice bath time #countonrecovery

Mamba is hesitant to venture into the cold.

Fully committed !The hardest part is getting over the first 2 min. 18 to go#countonkobe

Embracing his fate, the Mamba soaks in the cold ice bath, to enhance post-performance recovery time.

Perhaps the best tweet of all was the declaration of Twitter usurpage (yes, such situations deserve made up words).

Btw I've decided to takeover nikes twitter handle for a few days. So yes I'm finally tweeting!!Mamba out

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.

“Mamba out”
