Lakers super star Kobe Bryant, No. 24, activated a Twitter account today and announced it on his Facebook page.

His handle? @kobebryant.

His first tweet? "The antisocial has become social #mambatweets."

During the holidays, Bryant posted his family Christmas card on Facebook, and announced that his wife, Vanessa, officially joined Instagram, addingd that he may be joining soon as well.

In the meantime, his Twitter posts should be enough for fans of the basketball player. So far, his Twitter "followers" are nothing in comparison to his Facebook "likes" -- about 302,000 (and counting) vs. 14 million.

Bryant has yet to follow anyone. Any guesses on who his first will be?
