Kanye West's Twitter account has turned into an exhibition of feuds with fellow celebrities as well as a platform for his stream of consciousness.

On Sunday, after the rapper revealed that he's $53 million in debt, he took to Twitter and asked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1 billion in his ideas which he termed as "Kanye West ideas".

He then went on to vow that he would only go to the Grammy's if he was guaranteed 'Album of the Year'. “I am the Jordan and Steph Curry of music, meaning I'm the best of two generations,” he said.

And then basically asked the world to spam Zuckerberg on his birthday to give him a billion dollars.

After weighing the situation, he decided not to put all his eggs in one basket, and instead asked Larry Page, co-founder of Google, if he might want to consider supporting him financially as well.

West went so far as to make the outlandish claim that efforts to educate Africa's youth weren't nearly as important as his music and ideas.

As always, 'important' issues interrupted Kanye's stream of thought once again:
