Oh dear, it seems that being the only person followed by Kanye West on Twitter was just too much for Steven Holmes, aged 19 of Nottingham, England. Regular readers will know of Kanye West’s hugely popular Twitter feed gaining over 400,000 followers in a matter of days. We told a few days ago how Kanye West had chosen just one person out of the many thousands following him, to follow himself and that person was Steven Holmes.
At that time Holmes’ followers rose from 60 to 1,500 and at first he was ecstatic at being the only person that Kanye West had chosen to follow, being selected seemingly at random from the many who wished to be the chosen one, after asking West a question about how he cleaned his row of diamond teeth. In a tweet to West, Holmes said, “Holy s*** bro. Thanks for following,” according to Brad Wete over on EW.com.
However Holmes then became flooded with requests for interviews and some people became jealous of his status as the only person followed by West and eventually he tweeted “I won’t be speaking to any more press/journalists.” It seems that West is abiding Holmes’ requests for no more attention as he has stopped following him, although yesterday apparently West tweeted Holmes to apologize.
Holmes then replied saying, “No problem mate. It was just surreal that’s all.” Many people wish for fame but for Holmes it appears it was an unwelcome intrusion. We doubt somehow that West has been rejected many times before. That leaves the path open though for Kanye West to pick somebody new to follow and we know hundreds of thousands of people would welcome being chosen. For more on this go to ew.com.
