UPDATE: Britney Spears' manager, Adam Leber, has responded to West's taunt on the singer's Twitter account, shooting back,
"Thanks for 'letting' us be #1. Much appreciated..."

Nice to see that Kanye West has reached the stage where he can poke fun at his past embarrassments.

The My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy rapper took a playful jab at Britney Spears—and himself—on Friday, sending a tweet to Spears that hearkened back to his infamous "Imma let you finish" interruption of Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the 2009 Video Music Awards.

In a tweet referring to Spears' chart domination this week with her new single "Hold it Against Me" and the release of "H.A.M.," his own collaboration with Jay-Z, West wrote,

"Yo Britney, I'm really happy for you and I'mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z single is one of the best songs of all time! LOL"
West went on to note that "H.A.M." is "#2 on ITunes...THANK YOU!!!"

Well, at least he's polite about his digital disses.

What do you think of West's Twitter remark to Spears—too soon, or is it time to let the healing begin and learn to laugh again? Share with us in the comments section.

    HE WAS A LOW LIFE BEFORE THE TAYLOR STUNT AND HE WILL PROBABLY ALWAYS BE A LOW LIFE. ONE OF THOSE TROUBLEMAKERS WHEREVER HE GOES!! GET SOME BRACES AND PLASTIC SURGERY PLEASE!!! FUGLY TO THE MAX!!!! Before you begin to slander someone's name i strongly suggest you do some background checks... Kanye West has NEVER been a low life. He comes from a very influential and educated background in Chicago.... His mother (rest her soul) was a college professor and his father is a very talented photographer that worked for National Geographic and other notable magazines. Before you begin to bash a man and his background why dont you just simply say you do not care for the man period. I am sure regardless of YOUR backfround the last thing you would want is for someone to call you a low life or any other names. *let that marinate for a little bit*

    Like someone said earlier this isn't funny. Why can't he just not bring it up anymore?? If memory serves correctly the last time he brought this up was four or five months ago. Before that a year ago. He can't go more than six months without bringing it up anymore. HE'S the one that can't let sleeping dogs lie. I read a similar article on yahoo music and I couldn't even get past the "Yo Britney, I'm really happy for you and I'mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z single is one of the best songs of all time! LOL" part of the article. As soon as I read that I started shaking my head. I realized before I read this, I was hoping that he could change but I guess not. You do not see Taylor Swift bringing this up for the third time already (hell the first time even). All you see is Kanye West bringing this up time after time. I am really sick of people defending this idiot.

    What an A$$Hole!! Who's he to even tweet that to her. He was saying it as a "joke" but the reason he even said it in the first place was because he was hating that she was #1. Otherwise...he would have said "congrats" or something else. But to be joking and be sarcastic! He is so jealous! He seriously needs to stop saying stupid shiet. He's sooo trying to get attention! I guess it's working since ppl are talking about him AGAIN! HE IS WHAT YOU CALL A GENUINE RACIST AGAINST WHITES!!!

    By now, even Taylor Swift probably thanks Kanye! He sky rocketed her notability across every demographic by his actions!. Her name was in the mouth of people in every household. So leave the past in the past and take a joke!!!

    As sad as the Taylor episode was, it's in the past, and pretty far in the past. Time to laugh it off this time - if it gets to be a repetitive thing, well, that's a story for another day. Laugh this one off, he's picking on himself. He's picking on humself? Well,..I'll help him...Jackass! Jackass! Ha Ha Ha Ha Haaaa Haaaaaa! He eats sh*t!

    Kanye always has that 'sh*t eating grin' on his face. I think that he really does eat sh*t...Obama said that he does.

    I'M JUST GOING TO COPY AND PAST WHAT MDA SAID!! its the truth are you seriously trying to make a story out of this? He said "LOL" at the end. It was a joke. If you're going to get up in arms about an obvious joke he was making (about himself if you don't understand how a joke works), then you shouldn't be writing stories. It was all in good fun. He is an incredible producer. One that is deserving of the accolades given. No offense or anything, but you need to at least write an honest story, if you're going to focus on something as insignificant as a joke on twitter.
