Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant has made quite the splash since he joined Twitter last year. From throwback photos to showing up Mark Cuban, the Black Mamba has dominated the social network. 

If you were one of the few fans lucky enough to get a follow from Bryant, you don't have that anymore. He recently went on an unfollowing spree, stating that he had too much clutter on his time line. 

Arash Markazi of ESPN showed the results:

So who will he follow now? The Mamba revealed his new following system, where the fans will pick whom he follows. 

The Instagram caption gave us some great hashtags and more insight into how the system works. 

New twitter system. YOU are in charge of building our community. I will pick the first 5 to follow. They will then dm me who to follow next (1xperson) at the end of the week. We add the next five and then THEY will do the same at weeks end.. I'm capping it at 500 then I will reset and start over again #keepitfresh#BSFollowsuggestionwillgetuMUTOMBOED . I will reset tonight and pick my first 5 community leaders in the am #beglobal #beentertaining#besmart #dontbully #havefun #lakernation#mambaarmy #2manyhashtags mamba out.

Can't wait to see how many parody accounts Kobe Bryant will be following after this.
