Hip-Hop superstar Kanye West took tweeting to a whole ânother level by posting approx. 100 messages over a duration of about two hours earlier today. Included among his tweets was a seemingly sincere apology to Taylor Swift. Get the scoop below.
Kanye Westâs Twitter marathon began around 10-hours ago, and lasted for a solid 2-hours. The âMonsterâ rapper had a lot to get off his chest, tweeting about the repercussions of interrupting Swiftâs acceptance speech almost a year ago at the VMAs. Letâs take a look at some of Westâs tweets.
There were a few tweets before this one, but this is the one that really got the ball rolling:
Man I love Twitter… I’ve always been at the mercy of the press but no more… The media tried to demonize me
There are just too many of them to post, so here are a few of the most intriguing. TMZ offers more insight into Kanye Westâs Twitter episode in this article, check it out here!
You’ve got the Media play… Who benefitted off of the moment?
MTV? JAY LENO? BEYONCE? ALL FORMS OF MEDIA? TAYLOR? KANYE WEST? Who gained? Who lost?
Humanity and Empathy are 2 of the 4 principles at facebook. Those were the 2 principles I was missing on that evening
And they kept on comingâŚ
These aren’t regular tweets… this is stream of consciousness … I want you guys to know and feel where my head is at…
It is distasteful to cut people off as a general rule. What’s the point of dressing tastefully if I’m going to act the complete opposite?
To conclude the tweets Kanye simply wrote, âIâm sorry Taylor,â and just like that the eruption of tweets was over.
It seems to me that Kanye was sincere in all of this. I think he was clever in using Twitter as a tool to get his point across, not only to his followers, but also to the world, because he was aware that the media would jump on a story about him shooting off 100 tweets in a matter of hours. Everybody makes mistakes; therefore, everybody deserves another shot, especially when they are BIG enough to sincerely admit they made a mistake, and that they are sorry. I say we wipe the slate clean, and let West’s actions now, and in the future determine the rest.
