Kanye West Only Follows 17 People On Twitter - And They're All Supermodels

Kanye West has 1.4 million Twitter followers, but he's a whole lot more picky about who he deigns to follow.

He dates models. He sings about models. He loves watching models on the runway. So really, it's envitable that Kanye West only follows models on Twitter. Forget witty banter, insightful musings and cutting edge news, for Kanye, a simple three-tier criteria is applied: Are you tall? Are you beautiful? Are you a model? And only 17 supes have made the grade so far.

In fact, most are models that he namechecks in his new single Christian Dior Denim Flow, including Alessandra Ambrosio, Kate Moss, Jourdan Dunn, Esti Ginzburg, Anna Rubik, Coco Rocha, Lara Stone, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Veronica Webb, Selita Ebanks, Jessica Stam and Chanel Iman.

We're not sure if we should laugh or cry.
