Kobe Bryant showed up to twitter with one solitary tweet to the world stating:

 “Can you hear me now?!?!”

Within a few hours, Kobe had over 10k followers, but apparently it wasn’t to last.  Just as soon as his account appeared, it had been suspended.  It seems it was released prematurely, a source tells Y! and a time frame has not been mentioned for its return to the Twitter hardwood.   Currently, the following is the only image we were left with.

For the rest of us still with Twitter accounts we have been lucky enough to reap the awards of numerous jokes left on the wake of Kobe’s brief appearance. We have chosen a few of our favorites for you to also enjoy.
