Kanye West is no stranger to social media, consistently making headlines with his incendiary tweets. Now, he's joined another.

For an artist with a strong visual identity, though, he was surprisingly without an Instagram. That is until now. The singer has finally joined the photo-sharing platform, but has yet to properly announce it. Fortunately, there's a nice blue verification check next to his name to let us all know it is legit. Without publicizing its existence, the Instagram already has almost a million followers. His first photo, a screenshot from Total Recall, has 330k likes. Everyone knows the first post is the most important, so what could Kanye possibly be saying with this still? 

Who knows what direction his feed will take: he could turn it into a personal mood board (there have been whispers of a private Tumblr), or he could post behind the scenes photos from his life.  though with his latest tweet it seems the photos won't be so frequent or even posted by himself:
