Kanye West’s Twitter account on pause and wiped out


Kanye West: Saying bye-bye to Twitter, at least for now. (Brad Barket - AP)

Kanye West has disappeared from Twitter, taking all of his old tweets with him and leaving only a short note.

Man. It’s like he snuck out in the middle of the night without waking us up to say goodbye, the same way Finn handled things with Rachel last night on “Glee.”

The nature of his note, posted yesterday afternoon with no additional elaboration, suggests he’ll be back. Honestly, we can understand if Kanye needs a break from social media. But did he — or whoever handles his Twitter account — really have to delete all of his past tweets?

Shouldn’t the Donda rant have been preserved on the platform so that it eventually could be featured prominently in the Epic Celebrity Tweet Streams of the 21st Century exhibit in the inevitable American Museum of Twitter History?

Now, all we have are the RT memories and the lingering desire to apply to be either a car designer or app guy for DONDA. Sad.
