Kobe might of been late to the Twittersphere but he’s the first basketball player to do what we have been begging players to do a for a while – live tweet during special events. That special event that Kobe will be watching and discussing with the world of Twitter is his famous 81 point masterpiece against the Raptors back in 2006. The game will be shown today (1/22/2013) on NBATV at 1PM PST and Kobe’s twitter handle is @KobeBryant (easy enough to remember) if you aren’t one of the 953k followers of his tweets.
Letting u know that tmr I’m gonna watch my 81 game for first time @nbatv 1pst.I will be tweeting during. Time to rest and focus now#win

I can’t imagine how many tens of thousands of tweets Kobe is going to get considering I’ve seen DWade and Jamal Crawford get bombarded with hundreds of tweets during a spontaneous 5 minute Q&A at odd times during the night. This Twitter event has been promoted on TV and plenty of online media outlets and blogs – and it’s KOBE and it’s about a historic game!
If you wont be able to watch the game on NBATV and send tweets about Dwight Howard to Kobe later then you can enjoy every one of his 81 points in the next 3 minutes.
