Kanye West's Twitter, a catalyst in the iTunes sales war between the rapper and Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert, allegedly isn't even West's own Twitter account. Taking to his blog this weekend, West posted "I don't know anything about this...This is not me!!!" and posted an image of the faux-Twitter account, which asked the question "Who the fuck is Stephen Colbert" in the hours following Colbert's launch of "Operation Humble Kanye." The Kanye West Twitter page has since been taken down. With past Twitters like "and I just keep doing my thing...putting out G.O.O.D. music and cultivating my craft" and thanking America for electing Barack Obama, the page had all the makings of another stump for which West could shout from, except for one major detail: It wasn't updated nearly enough for it to actually belong to West, who posts upwards of ten times a day on his blog. Whether it really was West or the work of an imposter, we'll never know, but the Twitter can be thanked (at least temporarily) for allowing Colbert to defeat West in a battle of A Colbert Christmas vs. 808s & Heartbreak.
