What Does Kanye West’s Return Say about Twitter?

Rapper Kanye West recently returned to Twitter (TWTR) after giving the social media platform a wide berth for nearly a year. In May 2017, West quietly deactivated both his Twitter and Instagram accounts with no explanation as to why. West’s exit came at a time when Twitter was struggling with the problem of social media abuse, with some bad actors taking advantage of its service to try to inflict pain on other users.
