The 9 Best Twitter Rants In Recent Memory


Kanye On DONDA And Creativity, January 2012 

Kanye West has always had a tumultuous relationship with Twitter, often going on Twitter rants before promptly deactivating his account. In this rant from the top of last year, Kanye expounded on education, creativity and his new multi-platform brand DONDA. By the end of it, no one really understood what DONDA was, or would be, but here’s what he had to say:

“I designed a sneaker called the YEEZY with Nike. I’m ‘allowed’ to design 1 pair of sneakers every 2 years. I have more ideas…”

“I was just discussing becoming the creative director for the Jetson movie and someone on the call yelled out.. you should do a Jetsons tour!”

“I have started a new company and I’m so excited about the name. … it’s got the best name ever of all companies of all time!!!”

“DONDA is a design company which will galvanize amazing thinkers and put them in a creative space to bounce there dreams and ideas.”

“I am assembling a team of architects, graphic designers, directors musicians, producers, AnRs, writers, publicist, social media experts … app guys, managers, car designers, clothing designers, DJs, video game designers, publishers, tech guys, lawyers, bankers, nutritionist … doctors, scientist,teachers … DONDA will be comprised of over 22 divisions with a goal to make products and experiences that people want and can afford.”


“I sit everyday and ask what can I do to make a difference…”
