Doling out pearls of hip-hop brilliance in 140 characters or less
He's only been back on Twitter for a few weeks (since July 28), but already Kanye West has become the micro-blogging site's hottest celebrity addition since Conan. He has over a million followers and has inspired a host of parodies and Internet memes, from comedian Aziz Ansari's "#PredictingKanyeTweets" hashtag to whatever genius came up with the idea of using the hip-hopper's 140-character salvos to re-caption New Yorker cartoons. And most recently, he delivered a multi-tweet rumination on his infamous stage-storming incident with Taylor Swift at last year's MTV Video Music Awards, bypassing traditional media channels and taking his case directly to the public.
West has been posting new tweets at a furious clip, so if you're among the many who haven't been able to stay on top of his torrent of Twitter wit and wisdom (Twisdom?), Metromix here offers, as a public service, our picks for Kanye's top 15 tweets. Get ready—the Louis Vuitton don is about to drop some knowledge! (Plus a few typos and grammatical errors. OK, more than a few.)—Andy Hermann, Metromix
