The Story Behind T.I.’s Twitter Page


T.I. is back in the studio and now on Twitter. Atlantic Records has launched a Twitter page for the platinum rapper, but don’t expect many tweets from the King of the South himself.

There was initially some confusion about the authenticity of the account @Tip upon its launch on Monday (March 1). spoke with a rep for the “Whatever U Like” hitmaker, who clarified that the verified account was set up by his label as a promotional tool, although it may not be used frequently by Tip himself.

“He’s not into Twitter,” says his spokesman, “but it’s what we use to alert people.”

The first tweet revealed a major announcement early next week, which his rep confirmed. “Major announcement coming Monday 3/8 @ 5pm EST on,” it read.

The news could likely be a new album from the Atlanta MC, who has been behind bars for almost a year. Since his release to a halfway house, he has been recording his seventh studio album with Jim Jonsin and B.o.B, among others. It is expected to be released around the time of his crime thriller Takers on August 20.
