Kanye’s One Twitter Follow Bails Due To Media Attention

    A few weeks ago, right after Kanye West started a Twitter account, 19-year-old England resident Steven Holmes became an unlikely web-celeb when West made him his only Twitter follow. But apparently Holmes couldn’t deal with the pressure: He requested Kanye unfollow him because he’s been harassed by a bunch of people on Twitter and had to deal with a flood of media requests. Here’s what Holmes Tweeted after Kanye unfollowed him:

    No problem mate. It was just surreal that’s all. Sorry I haven’t checked my twitter out for a while. Cheers.”

    So it seems Holmes’s modest time in the limelight is over. As for which Twitter Kanye should follow next, might I suggest @prefixmag? We are r.0. [EW]
