Michael Jordan is still fairly new to the whole social media thing, but the Charlotte Hornets owner took over the team’s officialTwitter account Tuesday to connect with fans and share some selfies. He kicked things off the same way everyone christens their Twitter accounts—with a joke.
I’M BACK! …just kidding LOL. Trying out social media for the first time and sharing my day with you. Ready? #MJTakeover— Charlotte Hornets (@hornets) October 28, 2014
Something about Michael Jordan typing out “LOL” makes me laugh right along with him. MJ then tweeted out some of the sophisticated commemorative swag those in attendance opening night can expect.
Not a bad start. He's already better at Twitter than Magic Johnson is.

To prove to the haters it was really him tweeting, MJ then sent out his first selfie.

What would any Jordan Internet takeover be, without some snaps of his team in action?
He didn’t provide any shots of his notoriously bad denim jeans assortment (Google it) or any answers to the question everyone’s been asking since the day he retired. But he did tweet out a photo of the greatest sneaker collection ever to get fans salivating.
The G.O.A.T. seems to be having a blast on Twitter and fans are loving the peek into his day-to-day running the Hornets. Maybe we’ll be able to convince him to come back to Twitter a second and a third time, just like he did in his playing career.
