Kanye West joins Twitter

Kanye West is now @kanyewest. The rapper’s social media roll-out continued today with a brand new verified Twitter account, just a day after his surprise performance at Facebook’s corporate office.

In his first-ever tweet, Kanye said he was “Up early in the morning taking meetings in Silicone Valley.” A few minutes later, he added, “Lol I spelled Silicon wrong ( I guess I was still thinking about the other type of silicone ITS A PROCESS!! : )” Then, just a few minutes ago, came some more interesting information: “The album is no longer called Good Ass Job I’m bouncing a couple of titles around now.”

Surely all this online activity means that we’re about to learn even more about that mysterious new album of his. West’s days of laying low are definitely over. So far he has 16,000 followers and counting. Are you one of them? What do you think he should call his album?

Also: Kanye West already has the funniest Twitter feed of all time

    Much more excited about Dave Grohl joining Twitter (@DGrohl). Even though he’s only posted a couple of pics so far…at least one was w/Krist Novoselic.

    I support his use of capitalization. I wish he used punctuation, too, but I’ll take what I can get in this dumbed-down culture of “lols” and “r u ok” texts and tweets

    He wouldn’t have taken the trophy away from a man. He’s a waste of space: sexist, racist, coward.

  • moviemenace
