Kanye West Befriends Coventry Tweeter
The rap superstar selects one random UK fan as his "chosen one"...
Kanye West has mystified the Twitterverse by choosing a seemingly random man in Coventry as the only person to follow on the micro-blogging site.
Despite accruing 380,050 in the six days since he joined Twitter, the rap superstar has chosen Steve Holmes as his only 'follow', calling him "the chosen one".
The follow appears to have come after Holmes, who tweets as ste_101, asked West whether he used Colgate or polish to clean the his new diamond teeth.
When asked what he had done to get Kanye West to follow him, Holmes tweeted: "I just told a joke. Humour is the key" and replied to one message saying "I guess a witty joke was all it took".
The trappings of fame are already beginning to show, with Holmes now under the spotlight from thousands of Twitter followers.
On Saturday he tweeted: "I feel pressure to say amusing and witty tweets now that @kanyewest is following,"
However West threw his support behind Mr Holmes, telling him: "Tweet strong young man tweet strong!!!"
