@kanyewest: Twitter Narcissism Reaches New Heights

  • Save

Do we have to look over at Kanye again?

Or, rehash the VMA incident one more time?  Unfortunately, the ego has just re-landed, once again through Twitter.

Here are some of the most notable tweets of late…

> I’m sorry Taylor.

> I’m ready to get out of my own way. The ego is overdone… it’s like hoodies

> I want to win there hearts back so I can continue to bring my take on culture to the masses with a clean opinion.

> I wish they could accept that I’ve grown and only want to do good for the world. I want to help as many people as I can.

Some are lauding this as a shining moment for Twitter, a perfect example of disintermediation and a challenge to the distortion of established media outlets.  Another angle is that Kanye is merely juicing the controversial channels once again, and drawing more attention upon a pivotal moment and its central actor, Mr. West.  Perhaps that’s what it takes to cut through the congested media clutter these days.
