Über-ostentatious and fabulously future-forward rap icon Kanye West joined Twitter last week, to much fanfare. His early 140s were—how shall we say—boldly unmodest, and unabashedly self- (and brand-) conscious. At left, a Versace cereal bowl which was the subject of one early missive.
Everyone's a little awkward when they first join Twitter, and I commend him for writing his own material (many celebrities of his stature might hand over the task to, say, an assistant, or some Swedish girls). Kanye, if you're reading this, we love you (and I think your blog is really great). Also, Gray Goose! #ITSAPROCESS.
Update: Mr. West becomes cognizant of this meme.
