Kanye West returned to Twitter this morning with a date. But what could this possibly mean? No doubt his legions of fans are already pouring over this data.
June Eighteen— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) May 2, 2013
Elliott Wilson seems to think it's a release date, which seems likely.

Five other things he could be celebrating:
- The anniversary of the United States and the Soviet Union signing SALT II
- The Egyptian Revolution of 1952
- The indictment of Ted Kaczysnki
- Amelia Earhart becomes the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean.
- Waterloo Day (UK)
UPDATE: Elliott Wilson confirms with Def Jam that 6.18.2013 is in fact Kanye's release date.
