This year Twitter has been and endless source of insane and awesome tweets coming from musicians from across the universe. Remember when 50 Cent's twitter threats? Guffaw-worthy. What about Courtney Love's naked pictures? Dios Mio!
For digital voyeurs, such as ourselves, this is all gold. We get to see the bizarre and amazing lives of musicians in their own words and pictures. Sometimes the results are boring, but every now and again musicians give us a gem. Here is the second part of our roundup of our favorite musician twitter feeds that scintillate, titillate, and perhaps make us want to regurgitate.

Best Coast's front lady reveals her love for her cat Snacks, her boyfriend Nathan Williams from Wavves, and her love for weed. Not too much of a surprise, but somehow Bethany Cosentino's stoned tweets are usually pure gold.
Great Tweet: Recently met Justin Bieber. dude's so chill and he rolls really good blunts.
4. Kanye West
Kanye West is even better in parody when paired with New Yorker Cartoons or predicted by Aziz Ansari. But it you want way too much information on West's emotional well being, it's better to go straight to the source.
Great Tweets: "I can't be everybody's hero and villain savior and sinner Christian and anti Christ! Everything sounds like noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE NOISE!!!!!!! I don't trust anyone!"
Earlier this year, M.I.A. made Twitter into a weapon, lashing out against reporter Lynn Hirschberg by posting her personal phone number on the internet. M.I.A. has since turned to tamer subjects via her Twitter like electro jams and human rights abuses.
Great Tweet: CALL ME IF YOU WANNA TALK TO ME ABOUT THE N Y T TRUTH ISSUE, ill b taking calls all day bitches ;)
2. 50 Cent
The rich-as-hell rapper tweets incessantly, delivering the latest news on what he's bought, who he wants to fight, and ladies he wants to take to the candy shop/ let them lick his lollipop. If you're having trouble with his tweets, try getting them translated into the Queen's English.
Great Tweet: to my fans you don't ever have to worry about me killing my self but I might kill somebody else f*cking with me. Lol http://plixi.com/p/62186687
