Kanye West gets temporarily banned on Twitter; here’s how OU and the APD are attempting to limit large gatherings on campus

Today is Friday, Sept. 18, 2020. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning,

Kanye West’s Twitter account has been temporarily locked after violating Twitter’s privacy rules. His account received a 12-hour ban after posting the personal phone number of Randall Lane, the editor of Forbes.

In the since-deleted tweet, he said, “If any of my fans want to call a white supremacist ... this is the editor of Forbes,” followed by a screenshot of Lane’s personal phone number.

Surprisingly, this hasn’t been the only newsworthy event from West’s Twitter this week. He recently posted page-by-page screenshots of 10 of his recording contracts. He also posted a video on his Twitter of what seems to be West himself urinating on one of his Grammy Awards.
