@kanyewest is no longer a thing on Twitter and Instagram. Kanye West has deleted the profiles for both his Twitter and Instagram accounts -- both pages reading that they don't exist.

The news comes as a surprise, with the rapper and his wife Kim Kardashian West planning on launching their kids clothing line later today. According to Twitter Counter, Kanye had ranked in the top 50 on the site for most-followed accounts, with over 27 million followers. 

Billboard has reached out to Kanye's reps for comment.
