On Wednesday, a Twitter user shared a fun lil thing he's been doing with his iPhone homescreen lock. He set the background to a photo of Kanye so that "whenever I get a notification, Kanye holds it up for me," he captioned.

this is the best screensaver cos whenever i get a notification, Kanye holds it up for me

With a beautiful text from his mom, of course.

As some of you may have already identified, the image is from Kanye's Yeezy Season 3 listening party/fashion line debut.

It's evidently resonated with people, with over 60,000 retweets already, but really, it's done so much more. It's inspired an entire movement.
