Kanye West + Twitter + Nerds = #kanyenewyorkertweets

By now I'm sure you have heard that Kanye West has joined Twitter. I must say that he may be the person that twitter was made for. I've always thought that Twitter is less of a social networking site and more of a site for egomaniacs.  I'm not saying that everyone on the site is an egomaniac, but it seems like a majority of the users are more focused on talking randomly to no one in particular or exclusively to people that they already knew outside of twitter.  I just went off on a tangent there, sorry about that.  Anyway, since joining, Kanye has been pretty consistent in giving us 140 characters worth laughs through his pronouncements of his presence at random places or when he is making nonsensical demands.  Frankly, I like Kanye's music but hate his personality so 140 characters of him at a time is the perfect amount for me.

Some of his followers have decided to do a bit of a mash up of his tweets with cartoons from the New Yorker. His tweets as captions definitely put the comics in a different perspective.
