Kobe Bryant has been tweeting out and Instagram-ing updates on his recovery from a torn Achilles tendon with practically the same regularity of a teenage girl updating her followers on her wardrobe choices.

The only real difference being, of course, when Bryant posts something, we and a zillion other news outlets report on it.

Here, Bryant sent out an Instagram photo of him putting his foot down on the ground for the first time since the tear.
