Inevitably, at 12:30 on this Sunday afternoon in New York City, the account is already pushing up on half a million followers.

It'll be fun to see how West uses the social platform, given how proficient and controversial he's known to be on Twitter. Having a more openly visual component to the brain-splurges that he indulges in every once in a while on social media could be genuinely brilliant.

Then again, if he keeps posting stills from classic Arnold Schwarzenegger movies, that'd be fine too.
