LeBron James Chooses …Twitter!

National Basketball Association free agent superstar LeBron James has made his decision — to join Twitter.

James’ first Tweet (below) was sent shortly after 4 p.m. ET, and at the time of this post (just before 5 p.m.), he had already attracted more than 105,000 followers.

His initial Tweet hints that New Orleans Hornets point guard and close friend Chris Paul convinced him to join Twitter, on which he lists “King of Akron” as his biography.

Now, the question is: Will James reveal which NBA franchise he will join on Twitter, much like fellow free agent Joe Johnson did via agent Arn Tellem on The Huffington Post?
