Kanye West Returns to Twitter

Kanye West Returns to Twitter

After deleting his Twitter in May 2017, Kanye West has reactivated his account. His first tweet back featured a screenshot of Hypebeast’s article on Nike’s new M2K Tekno sneakers. “YEEZY 700 VIBES 🤦‍♂️😭🤣,” he wrote. He deleted the tweet several minutes after he posted it.

After reactivating the account, he deleted all of his old tweets. There is currently no explanation for the initial deactivation. He made a brief reappearance on his Instagram account—which he also deleted in May after just a few months on the platform—and posted for about seven hours before deleting the account again.

Kanye’s Twitter account has long been a lightning rod. In 2016, it hosted his beef (and reconciliation) with Wiz Khalifa, a survey of the streaming industry, and infamous comments about Donald Trump.

There have been recent rumors that Kanye is working on a new album in Wyoming with artist like Travis Scott, Kid Cudi, and others. He and his family attended last month’s March for Our Lives rally in Washington, D.C.
