On Thursday this week, Twitter user Michael Butler posted a screenshot of his phone’s new Kanye West wallpaper, which is positioned so that every time he receives a notification Kanye holds it up. It’s gone viral, of course. Really viral.
In his tweet, Butler said, “This is the best screensaver cos whenever i get a notification, Kanye holds it up for me,” and he’s damn right. Since it was posted, the tweet has been re-tweeted almost 150,000 times. It also already has a quarter of a million likes…
…and it’s convinced a bunch of other Kanye fans to do the same:

…so he ended up retweeting the original image in the hope that DMs would finally stop flooding his inbox. The image, which we’ve posted below so you can grab it as your own wallpaper, was taken at Kanye’s Listening Party 3 and Fashion Line show earlier this year.
Now go change that wallpaper.
