When T.I. showed up on Twitter last night (March 1) under the Twitter-Verified handle @Tip, a bunch of Twitter heads got excited about possibly seeing the inner thoughts of the Atlanta rapper fresh out of jail. Especially since Lil Wayne had officially joined the mirco-blogging fray just last week.
But T.I.’s rep at Atlantic Records has cleared everything up, confirming that it’s not actually T.I. tweeting as @Tip. At least for now, the account is just an avenue for the label to release news about him and his projects.
“It’s a portal for Atlantic and Grand Hustle to officially post everything T.I.,” the rep stated. “T.I. himself is not on Twitter.”
RT @MsKelz7: Is it true???? Is the King of the South on Twitter???? @tip @tinymajormama<absolutely not> —Clover Hope
