Kanye West Suggests His Twitter Feed Is Actually a Book He’s ‘Writing in Real Time’
Kanye West made a return to Twitter a few days ago, and has apparently transformed into a philosopher in his time away.
He's been tweeting life advice and offering insightful tips to creatives everywhere. Diddy may be the optimistic motivator but Ye is apparently Yoda for creatives. But then things took another interesting turn when Kanye suggested on Twitter today (April 18) that he's writing his book in "real time," and isn't trying to hear any input from publishers or publicists about it.
"Oh by the way this is my book that I'm writing in real time. No publisher or publicist will tell me what to put where or how many pages to write. This is not a financial opportunity this is an innate need to be expressive," he wrote. "I will work on this "book" when I feel it. When We sit still in the mornings We get hit with so many ideas and so many things We want to express. When I read this tweet to myself I didn't like how much I used the word I so I changed the I's to We's."
Based on those two tweets, it sure sounds as if his feed is about to become a book. And why not? He's Kanye West– he does what he wants, even when he strays off the beaten path to create new cultural ideas.
Anyway, after posting that little tidbit about the book, Kanye kept right on tweeting—about time and whether or not it's linear, about love stories, and about how the concept of originality should be handled by creatives. Suffice to say, dude sure has a lot on his mind. His tweets certainly sound like book fodder.
Guess we'll have to wait and see what pops up on Amazon.
