This could be another piece of performance art from Yeezy, but it's a bold one.
An investment of a billion dollars, to be exact.

Some cast doubt on the claim that Kanye was really so deep in the red, with one source telling Hollywood Life he's just trying to get attention.
“From claiming Bill Cosby is innocent, to dissing Taylor Swift, to suggesting that he’s running for president and making wild claims about being in debt, Kanye is doing exactly what he set out to do — create tremendous buzz and interesting in his business endeavors.”
But Kanye also has a number of income streams. Along with his music, he is a co-owner of streaming service Tidal, and has his own line of Adidas Yeezy clothing, which he previewed at said show last week.

No word on whether Zuckerberg or Page are interested in this sort of business venture, or if they'll even see Kanye's tweets — Newsy reminds us that neither of them are big Twitter users. Also, Zuckerberg's birthday is in May.
However, the Facebook founder did like a status update from a former employee, who questioned why Kanye would ask Zuckerberg for help on Twitter.
