Kanye West doesn't like impostors. And he doesn't care much for Twitter, either.

In a blog posting, the outspoken rapper railed against the micro-blogging site for allowing users to set up accounts under fake names. West called on the site to take down the user tweeting under his name - and Twitter listened.

The user - named KanyeWest - was suspended Wednesday. The site doesn't allow impersonation, but does allow parody impersonations clearly meant as a joke.

Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said in an e-mail that Twitter is looking at how best to implement an account verification system.
