In March Kanye revealed in a series of tweets that he was considering joining Instagram.

He wrote: "My tweets are a form of contemporary art only compromised by people trying to tell me what to tweet and not to tweet...

"on another note... I was thinking about getting an Instagram but only on one condition....

"no one can ask me or try to tell me what to Instagram... It's my art... (sic)."

It's unclear how he will be posting his pictures though as Kanye recently admitted he had gotten rid of his phone as it hinders his creativity.
