If you’ve been trying to slide into Tyler, the Creator’s DMs lately, don’t bother searching for his infamously brash Twitter handle because @fucktyler is now dead. Out of the blue, the Cherry Bomb rapper has decided to go with the more respectable handle of @tylerthecreator, and bid adieu to his former URL persona this morning.
RIP FUCKTYLER, WILL MISS YOU, ITS BEEN GREAT, BUT NOW ITS TIME FOR ME TO……IDK WHAT EXACTLY, BUT ITS TIME, IM OK WITH THAT. LOVE YOU.

Like he said, it remains to be seen if this new ‘grown’ name indicates any sort of deviation in how he handles his widely followed Twitter account but we are definitely pouring one out for the old mate. Despite being active for many, many years prior, even just a recent scan of his Twitter activity will bring back some very personal memories for us and every other Tyler fanboy out there. Check out the list below of just some of the Twitter dramas we’ve covered in the lifetime of @fucktyler. #RIP
