US musician Kanye West declares presidential ambition, shatters Twitter

Kanye West, a famous US musician, has shattered Twitter with the declaration of his presidential ambition. 

West tweeted on Saturday night that he is running for the post of President come November 3 election. 

But it could not be ascertained if the musician is serious about the declaration or he jokingly made the announcement as  publicity stunt for himself or a project unrelated to the presidency.

The tweet, which has gone viral, gathered more than 100,000 retweets within the first hour. 

West, 43, has talked about running for president for years. 

Last year he told an audience he’d run for president in 2024. He and his wife, Kim Kardashian West, have worked with President Donald Trump a number of times including on the release of prisoners.
