Kanye West Rages Against Twitter Imposters in Blog Rant

May 13, 2009 11:05 AM ET

Kanye West launched another Caps Lock-fueled tirade on his official blog yesterday, this time lashing out against the people who create fake Kanye Twitter accounts and pretend to be the 808s & Heartbreak rapper. "I don't have a fucking Twitter. Why would I use Twitter?," Kanye blogged (lower-case letters courtesy of Rock Daily.) "The people at Twitter know I don't have a fucking Twitter so for them to allow someone to pose as me and accumulate over a million names is irresponsible and deceitful to there [sic] faithful users." On a positive note, West insists he's "actually busy being creative most of the time," so maybe he's working on new music?

West goes on to call the whole situation "a fucking farce" and warns that Twitter better take down the fake Yeezys "because my Caps Lock key is loud!" It's so loud that Twitter apparently listened: Twitter pages like /kanyewest now carry the message "Sorry, the account you were headed to has been suspended due to strange activity." However, /MrKanyeWest and /WestKanye are still active.

After West was absolutely eviscerated by South Park, we were worried that the days of Kanye going on a punctuation-less, stream-of-consciousness spree were over. Instead, Yeezy has delivered his best outburst since calling Bonnaroo organizers "squid brains" last year. Enjoy Kanye's entire anti-Twitter post in all its capital letter glory, after the jump.

 

(This spaz comes courtesy of losers making fake Kanye West Twitter accounts) I DON'T HAVE A FUCKING 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 FUCKING 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 FUCKING 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!!!!!!!!!

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
