Kanye West returns to Twitter for first time in almost a year and deletes his old tweets

Kanye West continues to keep his fans guessing when it comes to social media.

Kanye, 40, reactivated his Twitter account on Friday, appearing on the platform for the first time in nearly a year after he deactivated it last May.

The Grammy Award-winning artist was gradually removing tweets from the site – as of late Friday evening, only one tweet remained on his central timeline: a tweet from CEO Jack Dorsey Friday reading, ‘Welcome back @kanyewest!’

The head-scratching comeback to the forum mirrored the Famous singer’s brief Valentine’s Day comeback to Instagram, in which he shared shots of dozens of famous pairings in a tribute to his own starry marriage to wife Kim Kardashian.

Among the tandems Kanye shared included iconic duos like political pairings such as President Barack Obama and wife Michelle, and President John F. Kennedy and Jackie Onassis; musical couples such as David Bowie and Iman, and Jennifer Lopez and Diddy; and a former high-profile couple in Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

The father-of-three – four-year-old daughter North, two-year-old son Saint, and two-month-old baby daughter Chicago – also posted a homemade card he made for Kim that read, ‘Happy Valentine’s Day Babe.’

The romantic return wasn’t the start of something new, however, as Kanye deactivated his Instagram less than a day after reviving the dormant account, which boasted more than 2.5 million followers.

The enigmatic performer was making headlines Friday after dubbing Kim as ‘as a Marie Antoinette of our time’ in a chat with The Hollywood Reporter with acclaimed designer Axel Vervoordt.

‘A designer told me that my wife was a master of light and I was a master of time,’ the Runaway artist said. ‘How to use time is equal to being someone who can cut a diamond.

‘The ability to preserve time is more valuable than the ability to preserve a diamond because time is our most valuable resource.’
