West Coast rap newcomer Kreayshawn recently opened up about her addiction to Twitter, and why she ultimately favors the easily accessible social network over Facebook.
With over 541,000 followers watching her every move, Kreay admitted she is a Twitter junkie.
“I’m always on Twitter. I’m on Twitter too much,” Kreay said in an interview. “I have people who follow me and that are my fans like, ‘I’m a huge fan of Kreayshawn but she really needs to stop tweeting so much.’ You know what I’m saying? I over tweet sometimes. But you know, you go through things, you over tweet, we get into our mind frame and kind of let the keyboard turn into your head if that happens. I’m good, I’m good. My online presence, I must say I’m very skilled at the electronics and things. Freestyling tweets. That’s what I do. Yes. You gotta do it man. Twitter cypher. … Facebook is like your living room, you invite your friends and your family into your living room, you show them photos and update them with family things and places you’re going. Twitter is like a street where all these motherf*ckers are just standing out there screaming at the top of their lungs. [Which do I prefer?] I like the streeeets. [laughs]” (Daily Dot)
A few days ago, rap star 50 Cent discussed his love for Twitter.
“I think it’s great. I think it allows you the ability to make a public statement from your telephone,” 50 explained when asked about his love for Twitter. “It allows you to reach your base, the people who have interest in your material or what you’re doing, at any time — I think entertainers are supposed to entertain on it versus provide more of their personal lives insight. But, it’s cool. Everybody utilizes it differently.” (CNN)
In September, Slaughterhouse’s Royce Da 5’9 gave SOHH the scoop on co-signing Twitter.
“I have a lotta fun f*ckin’ with people on Twitter. It’s a good vehicle to show a part of your personality that might not come across in your music. Being that accessible to fans — I hate callin’ them fans — but being that accesible to people keeps people from treating you like some kind of science project.” (SOHH)
Despite being under rap star Eminem’s wing at Shady Records, Royce said he uses Twitter to speak with high profile celebrities and the average person simultaneously.
“No matter how much popularity that I acheive, I want people to treat me like a regular person. That’s why I chose to not only converse with celebrities or only promote something on Twitter because it’s an opportunity to show people that I’m just a regular person. So yeah, I’ll get on there and argue like crazy. It’s all in fun though.” (SOHH)
