Considering how media savvy he is and how popular the service is among professional athletes, it's amazing that before yesterday LeBron James had not yet dipped into the world of Twitter. But now that the most coveted free agent in NBA history is now has a verified account of his very own, he joins the likes of Shaquille O'Neal, Shaun White, Michael Phelps, Chad Ochocinco and other high-profile sports stars who will be sharing their thoughts with their followers (of which James already has over 230,000 — and counting — in less than a day on the service).
James also becomes one of the last Twitter holdouts among megastars. It seems like no matter who you enjoy and no matter how big they are, your favorite stars are probably on Twitter. Britney Spears? Indeed. Justin Bieber? Of course. Taylor Swift? Naturally. Paramore singer Hayley Williams? Sure thing. Rihanna? Why not?
