Rapper. Fashion designer. Provocateur. Demagogue. Husband. Genius. Iconoclast. Father. Dork. Yes, Kanye West is a lot of things to a lot of people. The pop culture juggernaut has built a career on not caring what you think, a fact that’s most apparent on his schizophrenic Twitter account. There, West wears his many hats proudly and jumps from one persona to the next like Spider-Man building-hops in the Upper West Side. But the online persona West favors most is that of a geek, dork, nerd. Whether it’s the gushy cinephile, the gooey husband, or the eager friend, Kanye West has no problem nerding out online, because if you’re going to be dorky, what better place to do it than the Internet? Here, a roundup of Kanye West’s dorkiest tweets.
