Kanye West has 'social immunity'

Kanye West says Twitter has given him "social immunity".

The 'Bound 2' hitmaker is grateful to have the online outlet to vent his thoughts and opinions and thinks modern-day media has prevented him from being "silenced".

He tweeted: "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.(sic)"

And the 38-year-old star - who has become known for his lengthy social media rants - claimed he is standing up for the greater good.

He continued: "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)"

Kanye - who has children North, two, and Saint, three months, with wife Kim Kardashian West - went on to stress the importance of "truth".

He continued: "I have a dream.

"That dreams will actualize. Dreams will manifest.

"When companies doubt me they doubt us.

"They think we're stupid. They do not know how to communicate.

"Don't be scared of the truth because we need to restart the human foundation in truth

"Don't be mad at the truth. When you don't like me you are merely shooting the messenger.

"Don't hide from the truth because it is the only light.

"Everyone has made mistakes. I just make them in public."

After telling his followers he loved them but dislikes suit jackets, Kanye ended his posting - which had begun with a boast about the success of his Pablo pop-up shop - with an explanation of his preferred punctuation marks.

He wrote: "And I used a period because contrary to popular belief I strongly dislike exclamation points! I used an exclamation just to be an a**hole and also to make a point! LOL."
