Kanye West picks one lucky teen to follow on Twitter, bringing overnight fame

Kanye West is only following one fan on Twitter — but the lucky person he picked isn’t too excited about it.

Steven Holmes, a teenager from Coventry, England, suddenly found himself the target of a Twitter-storm when West singled him out as the only person he’d choose to follow.

“I just commented on something on Kanye West’s account and next thing I know he’s following me,” Holmes told his hometown paper, the Coventry Telegraph.

After he realized he’d been singled out, an elated Holmes thanked West on his account, Tweeting, “Holy s— bro thx for following!” West, who’s been making headlines for his vastly entertaining tweets, responded in kind, “You are the chosen one dun dun dun dun.”
