Tyler The Creator has explained why he changed his Twitter name.
Last week Tyler The Creator changed his infamous @fucktyler Twitter handle to his actual stage name. In an interview at Afropunk 2016, he revealed the name change was for business purposes.
“My stock just went up because of that name change… How can I contact corporations, like ‘Yo, invest a bunch of money in me, I have a lot of really good ideas,’ and I’m like ‘Yo, they don’t reply to me.’ Oh yeah, my name has this in it. First impression is automatically out the window.”
