Viewpoint: Is Kayne’s Twitter Horrible or Delightfully Awful?

Cosmic philosophy and cryptic, unresolved thoughts.




Within the past half-decade, Kanye West has become a purveyor of unrelenting Trumpism and self-righteousness: the two leave him to be, by most, an unfiltered and untameable voice of mental illness.

His nearly 30 million Twitter followers are subject to rants of cosmic philosophy, promises of a presidential campaign in future elections, and cryptic, unresolved thoughts. It’s a combination that proves to be captivating, many times over, regardless of whether his Tweets resonate or offend. 

West’s attempts at profoundness are delightful, often leaving readers scratching their heads and trying to decipher his train of thought. Though it’s unclear whether his cocksure demeanor helps in proving his point or serves merely as a distraction from what he’s actually saying.

Some seem to believe he spews insightfulness: @yetaughtni tweeted, “Honestly felt like the TL needed this… words of wisdom from the wisest” along with his perplexing speech on Ellen Degeneres. 

The propaganda for West’s supposed 2024 presidential campaign is plastered all over his tweets, promising a world of “free thought” and “love for everyone” if elected. His qualifications, according to West, include being a Christian taxpayer that has God on his side: a tall order for his opponents.

His followers are behind him, tweeting “2024” as a way of endorsing his run. “We will change the world. God is on my side. I am a Christian. I am a tax payer. I am myself. God is with us,” West tweeted.

Everyone is entitled to their own political opinions, but West’s vocal support for Trump is puzzling, to say the least.

His most recent tweet about the president left followers with more questions than answers. “One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me what to do because I’m black,” Wested tweeted.

And while West’s love for Trump runs deep, but his of for his MAGA hats runs deeper.

To put it simply, Twitter wouldn’t be what it is if we were deprived West’s thoughtful tweets that definitely do not contradict one another.
