Kanye West has ranted about “mind control” on twitter after reactivating his account.
The outspoken rap star has ended his self-imposed exile from the micro-blogging website by posting a series of behind-the-scenes videos in Uganda,wher he’s recording his new album, and than launching into a rant about mind control.
In one of the videos, Kanye – who described hiself as having a Mensa-level IQ – says: “You know, when people try to influence you through social media and try to tell you what to do or if you post something that’s positive on Instagram and it gets taken down if it’s not part of a bigger agenda, you know, that’s like mind control.
“That’s the echo chamber. That’s trying to control you based off of incentivising you and based off of you getting enough like, and that’s the poison that’s happening with social media.”
Kaye, 41, revealed he’s discussed the possibility of having likes removed from tweets with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
