Kanye West is too busy to Twitter, but apparently not busy enough to take to his blog to write a post taking the service to the mat over a fake Kanye account. In a 160+ word profanity-laden (and caps lock stuck) rant on his blog, the rapper said in no uncertain terms that he doesn’t twitter, and never plans to.
I DON’T HAVE A [expletive removed] TWITTER… WHY WOULD I USE TWITTER??? 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.
Forgive me if I’m wrong, but didn’t it just take you, what, 10 minutes to write this post, when 140 characters would have taken you 10 seconds?
IT’S A [expletive removed] FARCE AND IT MAKES ME QUESTION WHAT OTHER SO CALLED CELEBRITY TWITTERS ARE ACTUALLY REAL OR FAKE. HEY TWITTER, TAKE THE SO CALLED KANYE WEST TWITTER DOWN NOW …. WHY? … BECAUSE MY CAPS LOCK KEY IS LOUD!!!!!!!!!
Better run quick, Twitter! Kanye will sick his caps lock on you! Wow. Obviously, Twitter didn’t know this was fake. I highly doubt the company would have left the account up for so long. In other cases, they’ve been extrordinarily fast in removing accounts.
30 people work for Twitter. Just remember that — they don’t have time right now to cater to everyone’s needs, or even be proactive. They need our help.
Calm down, dude. Diva-ing out on a blog post doesn’t look to professional. Oh wait, you’re Kanye West — this kind of behavior is kind of expected. By the way, you might be interested in knowing that most of your fans are twittering these days, but I do digress…
