08:07 AM ET 09.09 | Kobe Bryant has been around the league a long time, but his entry into the the world of microblogging was a quick on -- for now, anyway. For a short time Wednesday night, [Bryant] was a presence on Twitter. His account even offered up an inaugural Tweet: "Can you hear me now?!?!" A pretty weak inaugural Tweet. The account was shut down after that, but it is expected to resume communication at some time in the future. Whether Bryant can bring enough individual effort and personality to Twitter remains to be seen. To compete with the likes of Twitter mainstays Justin Bieber or Shaquille O'Neal, Bryant will have to offer a lot more flair and originality than "Can you hear me now?" within 140 characters.
