Gucci Mane Changed His Name for Exactly 32 Minutes

Gucci Mane attends the BET Hip Hop Awards 2010 at Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center on October 2, 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia.

First tweet, 8:20 a.m. (give or take a time zone): "July 2nd I'm officially changing my rap name to Guwop and retiring the great GucciMane." Follow-up at 8:52 a.m.: "I am officially NOT chaining my name to Guwop it will officially stay Gucci Mane due to my Fans' response … " This is exactly how Twitter is supposed to work. Congratulations to all of us.
