Kanye West: Twitter stats on 39th birthday

Posted on

Between birthdays, Kanye West was a social media maven. The rapper and producer tweets irregularly but often in a barrage of messages.

Twitter analyzed West’s biggest moments during his time as a 38-year-old, in honor of his birthday Wednesday. By far the largest wave he created — in regards to mentions — wasn’t even from one of his 140-character notes: It was the announcement of his 2020 presidential campaign during the 2015 MTV VMAs.

The next peak of his year came in January, when he released the first track list for his new album, which was named SWISH. The songs on the record, renamed to The Life of Pablo, eventually changed. The track list post incited the infamous Twitter fight with Wiz Khalifa that ultimately resulted in most of the tweets being deleted.

Rounding into third place is his commentary on TLOP shortly after its release, followed by a note on greatness.

That pales in comparison to his most retweeted tweet of all time (of all time!): his inspirational plea shortly after the VMAs.

See all the big moments below.
