Kanye West is puzzled by a drastic drop in his Twitter followers in recent weeks.
The mega producer still hopes to become the 46th President in the U.S. But he has more pressing issues at hand. He's noticed his social media fanbase has decreased considerably - and he wants answers.
In a post on the social media platform, the "Gold Digger" rapper insisted his number of followers has dropped by a full 100,000 followers.
Posting a series of chin-stroking emojis, Kanye shared a screenshot of his Twitter account and wrote: "I was at 31 million followers 4 weeks ago and now I've been held at 30.9 million followers for the last 4 weeks."

Many of his followers were sympathetic, suggesting that fans may have unfollowed him because of his stance on abortion and other issues.
After launching his presidential bid on July 4, the rapper held a rally in South Carolina where he touched on topics from abortion to race relations to space travel. He recalled how he and wife Kim Kardashian almost terminated their eldest daughter North West.
In subsequent Twitter posts, he raged against Kim and his mother-in-law Kris Jenner, claiming they were trying to put him in the hospital and take his kids away from him. He also told fans he had been trying to divorce Kim for two years.
She later jumped on social media and suggested her husband was experiencing a bipolar episode and Kanye later publicly apologized to her.
