Fans following every move of LeBron James on Twitter

July 7, 2010

It seems the whole world is tuned in to the LeBron James saga, and speculating whether or not he will stay in Cleveland or land in another NBA city this Summer. Now, his fans and the media can follow his moves on LeBron’s new, official Twitter page, @KingJames. LeBron James signed up for the Twitter account on Tuesday, July 6, 2010. As of Tuesday at noon, over 100,000 followers connected with the page. No one knows if LeBron James will use his Twitter account to give any hints on his intentions, but many will continue to visit the Twitter page just in case he does. LeBron’s first Tweet to the world read, “Hello World, the Real King James is in the Building “Finally”. My Brother @oneandonlycp3 gas’d me up to jump on board so I’m here. Haaaa.”

Apparently, LeBron’s good friend Chris Paul, who has a Twitter account @oneandonlycp3, convinced him to join the Twitter bandwagon. Chris Paul posted a hint early Tuesday, “BREAKING NEWS: Gotta big surprise for evrybody on twitter 2day…lemme kno when yall ready and want to kno the news…” An hour later, Chris posted, “Couldn’t convince him to tell me which team he’s goin to but convinced him to join twitter lol…my brother from another mother @KINGJAMES.”

This is part of a growing trend among celebrities, which is to connect to their fans through the micro-blogging site, Twitter. Twitter allows celebs to be instantly connected and spontaneous. You can follow the Twitter accounts and other social networking sites of your favorite celebrities on, a celebrity portal scheduled to be officially launched on August 1, 2010.
