Lil Wayne finds his way to Twitter

Lil WayneAmong the myriad of things one should do the week before being sentenced to prison, getting a Twitter account is surely high up on the list.

Rapper Lil Wayne, who is due back in the Manhattan Supreme Court next Tuesday for sentencing, officially started tweeting on Monday.

His location? Mars, of course. (As his fans know, Wayne has repeatedly said that he is not the same as the rest of us, and is in fact a Martian.)

In his first tweet, Wayne explained, "im super new to this twitter [expletive] but wudup tho !" before adding in a birthday shout-out and a little encouragement for the Twitter community to start following him. At the time of this posting, Wayne already had around 61,000 followers.

He's certainly not one of the top celebrity Twitter users yet - his last tweet was about 9 hours ago - but there's hope that he'll keep it up even after his sentencing.

Wayne's manager, Cortez Bryant, told Rolling Stone that Twitter could be one of the ways Wayne will stay in touch with fans while he's serving his bid.

    i'm sorry, i don't think wayne cares what any of you think .. keep wasting your time talking shit on the computer while he's working hard and making millions. its not gonna make a difference. even if its not your kind of music, obviously it's someone elses or his records wouldn't be selling.

    LOVE weezy, even if he is in jail

    what's good with it ladies and gentlemen? i will try my best to write this blog without any basic grammatical errors since there appears to be a lot of english teachers out there (even though this is the internet, ad has it's own acceptable language and abbreviations). well all i have to say on the subject is that for those of you hoping that lil wayne is going to rot in prison, ask santa for something else. dwayne carter is a lyrical monstrosity, and he will continue to make money in prison if he is in fact sent. not only that, but his young money entorage will continue to produce. he has drake(close to eminem, jay z, and wayne in lyrical creativity)and nicky(a non talented female rapper who is just about the baddest thing walking in the hip hop world these days, and will make tons of money off her looks) as well as many other up and comers who will no doubt hold it down and bring plenty of money to his label. i dont necessarily like him as a person. he aint nothin but a studio gangsta, and a fake ass CMB blood. he does a lot of dissing to himself in his songs and lyrics, and probably doesnt even realize it (unlike GAME). however, he is a beast on the tracks, and i must respect him for that. this is good for him. maybe he will be put down for real, or at least get laced up properly on his knowledge.

    but more than likely he wont. he is in celebrity prison. his cell probably has more luxuries than my house.

    Just because someone is famous doesn't mean they have a responsibility to make changes for the greater good.

    Hell I think Lil Wayne as a rapper has set the Rap game back 15 years. He sucks and his rhymes have no real meaning.

    He's not gonna be typing his tweets personally. He'll tell someone what to type over the phone. Come on people, think about it. They're not gonna give hime a special computer to use in his cell. Thinking he's gonna get special treatment like that, now that's ridiculous.

    Isn't this the same guy who was allegedly raped by his limo driver as a kid? I guess he won't have a hard time 'adjusting' to jail life.

    So Lil Wayne is going to Twitter from jail huh? Are the other inmates going to have that privelege? Lil Wayne needs hardcore jail time like everyone else gets-no special treatment. How ridiculous.
