Kanye West has finally been bitten by the Twitter bug. Fresh off his visit to Facebook’s Office, , the rapper has signed up for the competing social networking service.
Mr. West surprised many when he joined the Twitterati on Wednesday (July 28). Instead of using a nickname like his rap peers @LilTunechi or @RickyRozay, he opted for a handle everyone knows and recognizes, @KanyeWest. His account has been verified and he currently follows no one.
His new album, is due September 14. Twitter just got more interesting.
