Many fans and followers of Kanye West were left confused yesterday (Aug. 7) after it appeared that the rapper’s Twitter page was either not loading tweets or that it “did not exist” at all. Fans wondered if his being down was a sign that he was releasing some new music, but that was not the case. It turns out there were a handful of Twitter pages that were not able to be read by others, and @kanyewest was one of the unlucky handles.
Some people may have briefly been unable to access certain Twitter accounts. The issue is now resolved, thanks for your patience!

West’s personal Twitter has been one of the more popular celebrity pages in 2016. Not only did he keep fans updated on the progress of his seventh studio-album The Life Of Pablo through the site’s 140-character confines, but he also continues to keep us extremely entertained with his constant musings.
This year on Twitter, ‘Ye infamously tweeted and deleted a rant against Wiz Khalifa, admitted that he had millions of dollars in personal debt and wrote about the rough patches between Apple Music and Tidal, claiming that their beef is “f*cking up the music game.”
