(Newser) – Looking for Kanye West's Twitter and Instagram accounts? Sorry, they no longer exist—again.

The 41-year-old had already quit Twitter for almost a year, returning in April, and recently returned to Instagram after a break. Vulture wonders if he left Twitter to finally wrap up an album he had said would drop last weekend. (Read more Kanye West stories.)
