Kanye West just started a Twitter account on July 28 and has already accumulated over 400,000 followers. But he follows back only one – the mysterious Steven Holmes. No one, not even Steven Holmes has any idea why Kanye chose him to follow.

Initially excited to be the only person Kanye was following, Steven Holmes thanked West via Twitter. West replied: “You are the chosen one dun dun dun.”

Steven Holmes quickly realized that being the “chosen one” could make his life a living hell.

Since Kanye started following Holmes, his Twitter followers have increased from 60 to almost 5,000.

Holmes confessed: “I feel pressure with my tweets now.”

In response, West advised him via Twitter: “Tweet strong young man tweet strong!!!”

Holmes told the Coventry Telegraph, “I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ but about 20 seconds later I had 20 messages from people I didn’t even know and my phone wouldn’t stop bleeping.”

Holmes is not so excited anymore to have Kanye West following him, and has made it very clear that he does not want anyone contacting him regarding West anymore.

Steven Holmes most recent Twitter posts include:

“This has been completely surreal and I really have no desire for this attention i’m just a normal person.”

“I won’t be speaking to anybody else, surprisingly not everyone wants to be famous. That’s all I’m saying – peace out x”

“Just to clarify, I mean I won’t be speaking to any more press/journalists”

Being the “chosen one” was obviously not what Steven Holmes had hoped for…
