Michael Jordan invades Twitter, photobombs his own employee (PHOTOS)

jordan-twitter-selfieMichael Jordan used to say that he’s not into social networks,  that he’s “old school”. However, earlier this week, Jordan took over the Charlotte Hornets’ Twitter account and quickly established his presence there.

Jordan, who is the owner of the Charlotte Hornets, became the first superstar player to ascend to controlling interest in 2010, when he upgraded his minority share in the Bobcats and bought out owner Bob Johnson for $175 million.

Jordan started off with tweeting “I am back… just kidding LOL. Trying out social media for the first time and sharing my day with you.”

Jordan also tweeted that “it is going to be a great season.”

Obviously, the Charlotte Hornets’ account got a lot more new followers after Jordan started “taking over”.  Jordan himself doesn’t have a personal account on Twitter.

Jordan then took a selfie, and shared it on the account.

The 51-year old, who is considered to be the best basketball player ever, didn’t stop there – he went as far as photobombing his own employee Eryn Gradwell, and even took a photo with the Hornet himself.


Jordan played in total 1072 NBA games (1039 started), averaging 30.1 ppg, 6.2 rpg in 38.3 minutes per contest. He was a 14-time NBA All-Star, and 6-times the NBA champion with the Chicago Bulls.

Jordan led the NBA in scoring in 10 seasons (NBA record) and tied Wilt Chamberlain’s record of seven consecutive scoring titles.

He was also a fixture on the NBA All-Defensive First Team, making the roster nine times. Many of Jordan’s contemporaries label Jordan as the greatest basketball player of all time.
