Tyler, The Creator’s Twitter Account Deactivated
Update (April 5, 11:43 p.m. EST):
It looks like Tyler has returned to Twitter after the account was deactivated.
Tyler, The Creator's Twitter is no more. The Odd Future founder's account was deactivated at some point today (April 4). Tyler had 3.7 million followers at the time of shutting his Twitter down.
It is not clear why Tyler decided to deactivate his account. A couple Twitter users noticed he'd changed his bio to "high chance i delete this and insta, how are you?" before the account disappeared.
Tyler's Twitter posts were sometimes inspiring, which is something he's managed to be for one of the biggest artists in the game. In a clip from the Cherry Bomb documentary, Lil Wayne said Tyler emboldened him to become more fearless with his lyrics.
“First of all, Tyler changed the game,” Weezy said. “Maybe I probably had a line that I knew I wouldn’t say because people might think it was too gross to put in a rap. Or it didn’t go with the whole vibe of the song. But I’d think about how Tyler [would] say this shit. He really be spittin, tho.”
Wayne also provided his own motivational words.
“Work hard, be somebody, be something more than what you see in the mirror," he said. "Let the world be your mirror, don’t let them judge you, cause the mirror can’t judge you. You judge what you see in the mirror.”
