Rapper Lil Wayne is headed to prison next week, but he’s showing us that it’s never too late to start a Twitter account.
Lil Wayne is expected to be sentenced to a year behind bars for weapons possession when he appears before a New York judge next week. But Wayne is not letting his impending prison stint stop him from reaching out to his fans. His Twitter name is “liltunechi” and his location, of course, is Mars.
"im super new to this twitter shit,” Wayne said in his first tweet, “but wudup tho !……….follow me biot¢h……….wudup mak……happy bday LO……8 days of freedom..ym."
In just three days, Wayne has amassed over 149,000 followers. His manager, Cortez Bryant, told Rolling Stone that Twitter could be one of the ways Wayne will stay in touch with fans while he’s serving his bid.
