Kanye West Quits Twitter, Comes Back to Honor Steve Jobs
What’s up with Kanye West? After deleting all of his tweets from his timeline for no reason, he returned to Twitter on Friday (Oct. 5) to salute Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs on the one-year anniversary of his death.
Yeezy wrote a few tweets to express his appreciation for Jobs, writing, “HE IS ONE OF THE MOST INSPIRING AND INFLUENTIAL HUMAN BEINGS OF OUR EXISTENCE ALONG WITH MICHAEL JACKSON, WALT DISNEY, AND DR. KING.” He then added, “LET’S BE THANKFUL FOR HIS LIFE AND RESPECT HIS LEGACY BY NEVER COMPROMISING ON OUR FUTURE.”
West wasn’t the only rapper to remember the visionary tech maverick who gave us the iPhone and iPad. Lil Wayne went on Facebook to salute Jobs as well. “RIP Steve Jobs…1 year ago,” he wrote with a photo of himself looking at his macbook.
But there is still no word on why West decided to clear his Twitter feed. The ‘Throne’ rapper was known for his quotable tweets and hilarious ruminations on life. The last time he was on Twitter he asked his 8.6 million followers if it was appropriate to use the B-word or the N-word in rap songs.
Before he gave an elegiac shout-out to Steve Jobs, West did leave one tweet for his fans: “BE BACK SOON.” So where is he going? Who knows?
