Kanye’s new philosophy book may explain why he wiped out his Twitter history

Image: TIMPONE/BFA/REX/SHUTTERSTOCK Kanye West appears to have a rough relationship with conceptions of time and history, so it makes sense that he's eradicated nearly his entire social media history. West exposed his discomfort with people becoming mired in their past memories during an interview in The Hollywood Reporter. These brief musings are apparently part of West's greater reflections, which he said he's compiling in his forthcoming philosophy book, Break the Simulation. In May 2017, West deleted his Twitter and Instagram accounts. Nearly a year later, on Friday, West reactivated his Twitter account and promptly deleted his history. As of April 14 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time, just three tweets remain; one each directed at Big Sean and Cyhi the Prynce, from West's GOOD Music label, and a retweet from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey: During the interview (in which West was actually supposed to be interviewing his interior designer, Axel Vervoordt), West specifically cited his problem with "human beings being obsessed with photographs" because it transports them into the past. In the realm of social media, at least, West seems to be fully embracing this philosophy. He activated his verified Instagram account on Valentines Day this year, and hours after wishing his wife, Kim Kardashian, "Happy Valentine's Day Babe," West again deleted his account. West's reveal of his burgeoning philosophy all stems from asking Vervoordt, his interior designer, what time period Vervoordt would travel to if he had to go back in time. West, it seems, has been deeply pondering the same thing.

It’s unknown when, and if, the book will come out, but these thoughts are consistent with West’s recent social media decisions. In May 2017, West deleted his Twitter and Instagram accounts. Nearly a year later, on Friday, West reactivated his Twitter account and promptly deleted his…
