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.


And that's is cute and all, but can we go back to @michaellbutlerr's mom's message for a sec?

Praying for you, sir.

And if you have an important iPhone home screen background ~hack~, show us in the comments.
