Four Epic Twitter Rants in Honor of Kanye West
When Kanye West tweets, magical things happen. West's high powered account lay dormant for quite sometime after his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album but last night, the floodgates were opened from West's creative mind. What emerged was a sprawling 85 tweet rant that commenced for three hours. In short, Kanye yelled from his giant mountain top "YOU SIT THE FUCK DOWN TWITTER WHALE, I'M TALKING!"

The fullness of West's epic rant last night was this: he wants to create a think tank company envisioned after his mother, his thoughts about school systems, creativity, design and more. Titled DONDA, the 22-division company would exist, in West's words, "with a goal to make products and experiences that people want and can afford." It's ballsy as fuck but we're talking Kanye here, the entire Watch The Throne tour was an example of how zany and awe-inspiring he can be.
When he tweeted out the e-mail account to submit applications to his mythical company, numerous appliers got the "This Inbox Is Full" message. I guess that's another step Kanye has to figure out, an unlimited cache of messages in an e-mail account.
Here are four more epic Twitter rants of recent memory.
CK got hammered on a flight to LA and somehow got a hold of wi-fi. This may be more disgustingly hilarious than the time he had sex with Joan Rivers on Louie. Plus, he did release a comedy album in true Radiohead In Rainbows fashion for $5 and that thing sold like mad.
Breezy has jumped off Twitter numerous times, the most egregious being after he was interviewed by Robin Roberts on Good Morning America about the "Rihanna incident" in 2009. He flipped out, went to Twitter and said things like this: "Don't say shit to anybody and everyone feels its cool to attack me. Grown adults! That shit happened three years ago. People please grow up. I've never dealt with so much negativity in my life! It's to the point now that it's just ridiculous!" He claims he's not doing any interviews in 2012 and wants to focus on music.
RANTER: Alec Baldwin
# OF TWITTER FOLLOWERS: 600,000+ (Before He Deleted It)
Oh Alec, king of Saturday Night Live song and dance. Last December, the 30 Rock star got into a verbal disagreement with American Airlines after he got booted off of a flight for playing Words With Friends. "Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt."
Boom. Baldwin then went on a rampage, asking his followers to unfollow him in protest. Still, his parody of the matter on SNL was even more epic.
