There have been too many Dave Chappelle Twitter sightings in recent years to count. All turned out fake. Including the one who got into it with comedian Katt Williams last year. But now it looks like it’s official: Dave Chappelle is on Twitter. Even though his account remains officially unverified, Chappelle’s old writing partner Neal Brennan tweeted the news.
Chappelle always struck us as more of a storyteller than a one-liner type of guy. So we’ll see how he adjusts to the new medium. Nice to have him back in the public view though.
Also: Deadspin has the story behind why the Ohio native Chappelle seems to randomly follow Grantland’s Kansas City Royals beat reporter Rany Jazayerli.
