Kanye West isn’t what you’d call an active member of the Twitterverse. Even though he’s racked up nearly 10 million Twitter followers, he’s following just one person -- any guesses? (If you answered Kim Kardashian, you win. Perhaps he’ll make it two as soon as their new baby, North West, registers for his own Twitter account.)
He’s also sent only nine tweets — dating back only as far as May 17, pretty much using the social networking service to build anticipation for his latest album, “Yeezus,” ahead of its June 18 release.
West did send one post after the album dropped to let followers in on a gift he received for his first Father’s Day, just nine days after North was born June 15. He tweeted a photo of two autographed Apple computer mouses, one signed “Woz” for Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, the other “Steve Jobs,” by Woz’s partner in the historic computer startup.
West’s two latest tweets, however, make it appear that the rapper may be laying the groundwork for a secondary career as a film critic.
“I saw a pre-screening of Pacific Rim yesterday,” West tweeted Wednesday of the new Guillermo del Toro action movie due out July 16.
His assessment? “It's easily one of my favorite movies of all time.”
But that’s not all, folks. “This is not another ‘Robot’ movie,” he said in a follow-up Twitter post. “Guillermo del Toro is a master.”
Pop & Hiss can’t wait to find out what he thinks about Jamie Foxx’s performance in “White House Down.”
