On Twitter that is. Steven Holmes (@ste_101) is the lucky guy. Or is he?
West, who started his Twitter account just last week (@kanyewest) and quickly accumulated hundreds of thousands of followers, had previously avoided following anyone else. Until Saturday that is, when West started following Steven Holmes from Coventry, England, deeming him “the chosen one.”
Since then, buzz has circulated about Holmes, who he is and why West picked him. The Guardian reports that Holmes has dealt with Twitter users “firing misplaced anger in his direction, asking why he is West’s chosen one (he doesn’t know).”
Judging by Holmes’ Twitter feed, the spotlight is something he’s having a hard time adjusting to. One of his recent Tweets reads, “This has been completely surreal and I really have no desire for this attention i’m just a normal person.”
