Kanye West is building quite a Twitter following and quick!
Yeezy has only been tweeting for two days, and as of press time he had 307,510 followers. This comes after the rapper paid a little visit to Twitter headquarters where he did another impromptu performance.
As soon as Kanye set up his account, it seems that users couldn’t follow him fast enough. “We getting about 80 FOLLOWERS A SECOND no exaggeration!!!” he bragged.
In fact, ‘Ye’s so popular that he became a trending topic with #PredictingKanyeTweets. Our favorite was from comedian Aziz Ansari, who tweeted, “Damn I wish Hermes made edible snacks, Cheezits just ain’t dope enough for my mouth.”
’Ye himself has been dropping awesomeness since the day he first logged on. From what we’ve read so far, he’s a natural born tweeter, keeping fans updated on what he’s doing. Specifically, he announced that he was at an editing session for the video of “Power.”
He’s not taking himself too seriously, though, poking fun at his infamous MTV Awards outburst. “This J.Press tie is the greatest tie of all tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime!” he joked Thursday.
“My thoughts on Twitter so far… at the end of the day, God damnit I’m killing this shit!!!” Kanye added. “I think Twitter was designed specifically with me in mind just my humble opinion hahhhahaaaahaaa humble hahahahhahaahaaaa.”
