Kanye West Twitter: Social Media Homework for New Album

By Alan Ng - Jul 29, 2010

Kanye West certainly knows how to promote an upcoming release. With his latest album approaching soon, the rapper has begun his advertising campaign, starting with social-networking websites Facebook and Twitter.

As reported from Chicago Tribune, West has now signed up for a Twitter account. He obviously is aware of the exposure he can get via the website, not to mention that Twitter is an ideal way to communicate with his millions of fans. I’ve had a quick look at his Twitter account, and he has just passed the 200,000 followers stage, just one day after opening his account.

Furthermore, the rapper also popped into Facebook offices in California, to give a special preview of some of his upcoming releases. You’ll be able to check out some of the videos on YouTube.

Kanye West might have not been too bothered about social media in the past, but it looks like he certainly is now! Are you following him on Twitter? – Let us know your thoughts on this.
