What the Stars are Tweeting: Kanye West hits 406k Instagram followers in hours

American rapper and Fashion designer, Kanye West, officially joined Instagram over the weekend and has uploaded just one picture so far.

West tweeted months ago that he was thinking of joining Instagram, on the grounds that no one could tell him what to post. After all, his “tweets are a form of contemporary art only compromised by people trying to tell me what to tweet and not to tweet.”

“On another note… I was thinking about getting an Instagram but only on one condition….”no one can ask me or try to tell me what to Instagram… It’s my art… (sic).”

It’s unclear how he will be posting his pictures though as Kanye recently admitted he had gotten rid of his phone as it hinders his creativity.

He tweeted: “I got rid of my phone so I can have air to create.”

Kanye amassed 406,000 followers in hours after he joined Instagram, but he has a long way to go before he reaches his wife Kim Kardashian West, with over 82 million fans.
