Kanye West Follows Coventry Man On Twitter

Rapper Kayne West has chosen to follow only one of his 379,311 Twitter account followers, The Guardian has reported.

Kayne West recently set up an account on the micro-blogging site, immediately gaining hundreds of thousands of followers, but has chosen only to follow Coventry resident Steven Holmes.

Following this news, Holmes saw his number of personal followers increase, reaching 1,647 at time of publishing.

Holmes had initiated the conversation, commenting on a twitpic posted by West, called DiamondTeeth. He asked: "Do you clean them with Colgate or polish?"

West replied: "I used to clean my diamonds with toothpaste when I was about 19 ... so this works out perfectly."

Holmes then thanked the rapper for following him: "Holy s**t bro, thx for following!"

To which West replied: "You are the chosen one dun dun dun dun."

Holmes has since tried to adjust to the demands of his new-found fame. He tweeted: "I feel pressure to say amusing and witty tweets now that @kanyewest is following."
