Angered by the number of fake Twitter accounts using variations of his name (in vain?), music giant Kanye West posted a visceral anti-Twitter rant on his blog. Along with typing in all caps, West accused Twitter of being "deceitful" and "irresponsible". Here are West's latest lyrics (sans auto-tune):
"DON’T HAVE A F****** 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. EVERYTHING THAT TWITTER OFFERS I NEED LESS OF. THE PEOPLE AT TWITTER KNOW I DON’T HAVE A F****** TWITTER SO FOR THEM TO ALLOW SOMEONE TO POSE AS ME AND ACCUMULATE OVER A MILLION NAMES IS IRRESPONSIBLE AND DECEITFUL TO THERE FAITHFUL USERS. REPEAT… THE HEADS OF TWITTER KNEW I DIDN’T HAVE A TWITTER AND THEY HAVE TO KNOW WHICH ACCOUNTS HAVE HIGH ACTIVITY ON THEM. IT’S A F****** FARCE AND IT MAKES ME QUESTION WHAT OTHER SO CALLED CELEBRITY TWITTERS ARE ACTUALLY REAL OR FAKE. HEY TWITTER, TAKE THE SO CALLEDKANYE WEST TWITTER DOWN NOW …. WHY? … BECAUSE MY CAPS LOCK KEY IS LOUD!!!!!!!!!"
Wait a minute...Leahy is "too busy actually busy being creative", let me go smack him. That's better. Oh Kanye, how could you be so heartless? Ha!
I know some of you faithfully follow TheFeed via Twitter, but I also know that many of you don't like or don't understand the point of tweeting. Does Kanye's Twitter rant change your opinion of this burgeoning service? How about your opinion of Kanye? Leave a comment, let me know, and follow me on Twitter (please)!
