Let’s be honest, when I heard that Atlanta Hawks forward Elton Brand didn’t have a Twitter account that didn’t surprise me too much.
However, Elton decided to try out the whole Twitter thing for a single day and well, I let the folks over at Hawks BasketBlog tell the rest of the story:
That was until Sunday, when Brand finally decided to try it. @EltonBrand42 didn’t last long though, as Elton tweeted for the last time just minutes before the team took off for Miami Monday afternoon.
“Special Thanks to the Tens and Tens of followers I’ve met since yesterday. This Twitter Stuff is just not for me though. #PeaceAndBlessings”
A few things to note:
– In just 24 hours, Brand had already grasped the concept of hashtags, even if he didn’t fully understand how they worked.
– While Brand was clearly being humorous with the “tens and tens” comment, the reality was he had well over 1,000 followers as of this morning, which was the last time we checked on the account.
One of the notable tweets that Elton sent out was directed towards teammate Louis Williams and well, I guess we’ll never know if Elton can figure out that Intergram:

In case you wanted to remember that Elton’s past in the NBA, here is a video to remind you:
