It appears as though Kobe Bryant has taken the plunge and gotten himself a Twitter handle. Nike confirmed that @KobeBryant is actually Kobe Bryant with a tweet early Friday afternoon. The Lower Merion alum had sent one tweet as of 12:30 p.m.

By 12:35, Bryant had already amassed more than 26,000 followers.

So, if you've been dying for a means to troll the local product, here's your shot.

For those of you keeping score at home, you know this is big because Joseph Gordon-Levitt took time out of his busy schedule of pining after Zooey Deschanel and helping Danny Glover manage the Angels to welcome Bryant to Twitter.
