One week from today Kanye West (@KanyeWest) much-anticipated new album entitled “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” will be released. Kanye, has been using Twitter to promote the album sending tweets to tracks on Fridays that he calls “G.O.O.D Fridays” to go with the name of his new label called “G.O.O.D. Music”. But it has been an interesting road for Kanye West and Twitter since 2009 let’s take a look back at how his Twitter journey has evolved.

Now what is Kanye West day on Twitter? On November 22 in honor of “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” album being released I’m going to post a Tweet for every hour of the day (24 tweets) with either a Kanye West Song title or quote from one of his songs with the hashtag #kanyewest. For example one tweet would look like this: #kanyewest “But I’m a champion, so I turned tragedy to triumph, Make music that’s fire, spit my soul through the wire” If you want to join/participate feel free to do the same or just post a tweet with the hashtag #kanyewest and try to keep it positive.
