Kanye West Joins Twitter, Tops 20,000 Followers in Two Hours

By the time Kanye West's announcement that he has indeed joined Twitter made it to our Google Reader, more than 10,000 followers were on board -- that number doubled quickly once Perez Hilton got wind of it and just topped 25K, thanks to Entertainment Weekly. By the end of the day, followers of @kanyewest could be approaching Lil Wayne (@liltunechi) numbers. Given the erratic rapper's Facebook performance yesterday, this is not a surprising development. We're just glad he's not tweeting in ALL CAPS.
