May the Twitter-verse bow down because we are now in the presence of greatness, and that greatness is none other than Mr. Kanye West. Yesterday I began to feel that my already non-important tweets became a little more inferior and I didn’t know why. But #PredictingKanyeTweets pretty much has the tweets down to a science.
I’m actually kind of nervous to follow Kanye, I feel like his tweets are going to intimidate me … and just wait until the first time the fail whale pops up and he experiences the Twitter is over-capacity he might think his ego broke it… (I really am a Kanye fan despite his crazy persona).
Within only a few hours of being on Twitter he proclaimed ‘awwwww man this is addictive I might get in trouble on here!!!!’ For some reason I think Kanye being on Twitter is going to be explosive and hilarious at the same time. Think of the Mel Gibson rants without the career ending mess.
I think anyone who follows Kanye should prepare your eyes for the caps lock and exclamation point effect. Kanye LOVES the caps lock key, as shown by one of his first tweets:@Kanyewest SWAGGER ON 200,000 THOUSAND TRILLION!!! The man is on his way to being among the ranks of @britneyspears and @Aplusk (Ashton Kutcher) in no time Kanye will be number one… the King of Tweetin’, Well at least in his eyes he will be. So watch out Britney and Ashton, Kanye will let you finish your tweet, but he has the best tweets of all time.
At the end of the day Kanye knows his place and he knows ‘It’s good to be king!!’… See I told you about those exclamation points. If you do not yet follow his majesty just think of his VMA rant to get a taste of some of his more colorful tweets. Personally I can’t wait until he goes on a mad tweet rampage! I think I will follow him just to watch!
