Kanye West checks his Twitter every morning

Kanye West checks his Twitter first thing when he wakes up.

The 'Only One' hitmaker likes to see what people have been saying about him and regularly visits site Hypebeast.

He told Real 92.3's Big Boy's Neighborhood radio show in Los Angeles: "I like it. Any comments or whatever. Hypebeast is one of my favourite sites to go to. They're hilarious. It's just the funniest comments and stuff ...

"I go read it. Wake up in the morning, check it out, read some comments. I got this line on 'Saint Pablo,' checking Instagram comments to crowdsource my self-esteem. I was saying that sarcastically."

Meanwhile, Kanye - who has two-year-old daughter North and five-month-old son Saint with his wife Kim Kardashian West - previously revealed Twitter has given him "social immunity".

He wrote on the site: "thank God for paps thank God for social media ... in the past the press/old guard and powers that be would have silenced me a long time ago but I have a form of social immunity.

"I represent the dreamers. I speak truth to power!!! And I promise the power is in the people and I will use the power given by the people to bring everything I have back to the people. We are here to make life better. I speak yell scream directly at the old guard on behalf of the future. They can't kill us all. Eventually the guys with real ideas not running a scam on the world will overcome. (sic)"
