LeBron’s back on Twitter, with 5 million followers
MIAMI—LeBron James is back on Twitter, and the Miami Heat star has more followers than ever.
The newly crowned NBA champion and NBA Finals Most Valuable Player ended a nearly two-month break from social media early Friday, posting a 50-second video to thank fans for both their support and their patience.
James now has just over five million followers. He crossed that milestone Friday, a few hours after the Heat beat the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 5 of the finals and win the franchise’s second championship.
James said he stopped tweeting during the playoffs in an effort to avoid distractions as he chased his first championship.
