Kanye West's Social Media Domination Continues: No One Man Should Have All That Twitter
In case you’ve been nowhere near the Intertubes in the past 24 hours, here’s a recap: rapper Kanye West joined Twitter yesterday, amassed more than 200,000 followers and previewed a few new tracks off of the Album Formerly Known as Good Ass Job at Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif. and then later in the day at Twitter HQ (video below).
And with the arrival of Kanye to the Twitternets, so emerged a hashtag: #PredictingKanyeTweets.
Most of the updates in the predicted-tweets trending topic were playing off the Interrupting Kanye meme, obvious jabs at his ego, South Park references or invocations of Justin Bieber. But a few were actually pretty funny, especially when Twitter-friendly celebrities like Questlove and Aziz Ansari got involved.
