G.O.O.D. Music’s Kid Cudi has announced his return to Twitter and updated fans on what new elements he is bringing to the rap game.
Via Twitter on Wednesday (January 26), Cudi gave followers the 4-1-1 on his upcoming projects.

In Fall 2009, Cudi explained the reason why he stopped using his Twitter account.
“I have an iPhone and I don’t even utilize all of the applications on it,” Cudi explained. “Just alone on an iPhone you can have multiple e-mails — I have two e-mails — text messaging, some people have AIM on there, MySpace, Facebook — and I don’t even have those things…With Twitter, my two e-mails, text messaging, and my phone ringing, that’s just overwhelming. And you gotta think of it like this, what did they do before there were cell phones? Use a pay phone or write a letter. Or you catch ‘em at the crib….I think I want to take it back to that. Sometimes it just shouldn’t be that easy for you to get in contact with me.” (Rap-Up)
Months later, Cudi came forward to address Twitter accounts and blogs that falsely utilized his namesake.
“what up yall? Ive been hearing theres a lot of fake kid cudi accounts on twitter and facebook and i want to reassure everyone that none of these r me,” Cudi penned in December 2009. “i will NEVER get back on twitter or facebook. im gettin my blog back together and that will be the only way to stay connected with me. i think its sad as a m*thaf*cka people do this but, oh well, its inevitable. dont fall for it, if datnewcudi.com or kidcudi.com doesnt make a announcement (and i assure you they wont) then its some creeper lookin for attention. catch me on tour baybayyyyy. peace n love” (Dat New Cudi)
