Well, that was fast.

Just a day after Kanye West announced he was leaving Twitter, writing "BE BACK SOON" on his page, the loquacious rapper was back on the social networking site Friday with a message for his followers.

So, what made him renig on his self-imposed Twitter silence so quickly? 

West paid tribute to late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who passed away Oct. 5 last year after an eight-year battle with pancreatic cancer.

"WE LOST STEVE A YEAR AGO TODAY… HE IS ONE OF THE MOST INSPIRING AND INFLUENTIAL HUMAN BEINGS OF OUR EXISTENCE ALONG WITH MICHAEL JACKSON, WALT DISNEY, AND DR. KING. LET'S BE THANKFUL FOR HIS LIFE AND RESPECT HIS LEGACY BY NEVER COMPROMISING ON OUR FUTURE," West tweeted.

No word yet on if West is back for good.
