And identical to that… Kanye West has vanished from social media

As shortly as he got here again, Kanye West has now disappeared from Instagram and Twitter, presumably ending a polarizing summer season of usually batshit loopy popular culture pot stirrings. As of October 6, the rapper’s Instagram and Twitter accounts seem to have gone darkish. Ye’s return to Twitter was an integral side to the “promotion campaigns” behind his Wyoming Session albums that had been launched over the summer season, rejoining the platform simply weeks earlier than the string of shortened LPs began touchdown in May. A return to Instagram adopted some weeks later, every platform drawing in hundreds of thousands of followers — however somewhat than deploying typical advertising schemes to push album gross sales, the Chicago-born rapper’s social media presence largely spiraled into sporadic nonsense, bloated egotistical musings, and finally, and maybe most noticeably, divisive Trump-touting and weak rap beef fodder.

Most just lately, Ye’s swiftly promised Yhandi LP managed to overlook its meant late-September launch date. Then the rhymer’s unaired closing speech at SNL, throughout which he claims he was bullied for his political affiliations, was intently adopted by what was probably his most baffling social media submit but — calling to “abolish the 13th modification,” which introduced an finish to slavery when it was ratified in 1865. After a messy, albeit entertaining, six month stretch on social media, it appears Kanye West could lastly be able to hold a few ideas to himself. An eventual return appears inevitable, although for now, the Twittersphere could cool down just a bit with Ye’s departure.
