A Brief History of Kanye West's Twitter


So last night professional crazy person Kanye West opened up a Twitter account after performing a mysterious and confusing (but kind of awesome) a capella performance at Facebook HQ. If you were lucky enough to start following him last night you either stayed up late into the night waiting for his next insane, misspelled (but again kind of awesome) Tweet or awoke this morning to a torrent of craziness. So, without further introduction (or parentheses) here’s our guide for understanding the unhinged tweet-rantings of Kanye West.

“Up early in the morning taking meetings in Silicone Valley” 11:17 AM Jul 28th

And we’re off, word misspelled, but it’s not really too insane right?

“Lol I spelled Silicon wrong ( I guess I was still thinking about the other type of silicone ITS A PROCESS!! : )” 12:05 PM Jul 28th

Ok, that smiley is a bit strange, but nothing like his capslocked blog posts, maybe Kanye West has calmed down a bit. Who doesn’t get confused about the difference between silicon and silicone? He dates a lot of models.

Between 12:53 PM Jul 28th and about 22 hours ago West made shout outs to various celebrities like Jimmy Fallon and Perez Hilton, did a shoutout to Pitchfork, usual stuff. He tweets here and there about how cool twitter is; around yesterday afternoon it really looked like he was all better from the kooky thoughts that made him yell Taylor Swift and cry on television. Last night it looked like we were in the clear America-we got our college dropout back!

And then about 13 hours ago he started posting about goblets…

And he kept posting about goblets…

This what I'm on on Twitpic

Oh, here’s another goblet picture…

And then after that, as the night rolled into the early morning he pretty much just stopped making any sense whatsoever.

About 13 hours ago he tweeted “I feel the glow” and from then on it was a mish-mash of insanity with tweets like “SWAGGER ON 200,000 THOUSAND TRILLION!!!” (I don’t think that’s a number…), “Dating models I had to learn to like small dogs and cigarettes,” “Classical music is tight yo,” “William Tell” Overture by Andre’ Rieu … Maybach music!!!,” and then about 2 hours ago West tweeted “I specifically ordered persian rugs with cherub imagery!!! What do I have to do to get a simple persian rug with cherub imagery uuuuugh.”

And then there’s this. Which we can get behind!

So, there you have it, a simple and easy to follow timeline on the rising insanity of Kanye West’s twitter account. There’s probably a good chance it’s only going to get more insane from here, so be sure and start following him now, it can’t be long before he tops Hayley Williams and twitpics his penis wearing shutter shades “accidentally.”
