Despite previous resistance to hop aboard, Kanye West has finally joined Twitter. This comes of his heels of his recent visit to Facebook headquarters. Maybe those tech nerds talked him into it.
The rapper-producer finally joined the Twitter crowd on Wednesday (July 28), and unlike some rappers — Weezy for example (@LilTuneChi) — Kanye West used his name instead of a nickname.
You can follow ‘Ye at @KanyeWest.
“Up early in the morning taking meetings in Silicone Valley,” Yeezy wrote in his first Tweet, before posting a follow-up text to correct his spelling. “Lol I spelled Silicon wrong (I guess I was still thinking about the other type silicone ITS A PROCESS!! : )”
In another tweet an hour later, he revealed that his forthcoming album would no longer be titled Good Ass Job, but explained he had yet to decide on another title.
“I’m bouncing a couple of titles around now,” Ye said.
Back in May 2009, via his blog site (KanyeUniverseCity.com), Kanye blasted the microblogging service, saying he was too busy to update fans regularly with everyday stuff.
“WHY WOULD I USE TWITTER???” he asked in one of his all-caps blog entries. “I ONLY BLOG 5 PERCENT OF WHAT I’M UP TO IN THE FIRST PLACE. I’M ACTUALLY SLOW DELIVERING CONTENT BECAUSE I’M TOO BUSY ACTUALLY BUSY BEING CREATIVE MOST OF THE TIME AND IF I’M NOT AND I’M JUST LAYING ON A BEACH I WOULDN’T TELL THE WORLD. EVERYTHING THAT TWITTER OFFERS I NEED LESS OF.”
Now that he’s finally joined, it’s apparent that fans want to hear what he has to say. As of press time, Kanye was closing in on 100,000 followers.
