Kid Rock said he's saddling up for a Senate run on Wednesday and Twitter cannot keep its cool over the news.

The rapper appeared to announce his candidacy with new posts on his social media pages. "I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real... kidrockforsenate.com," he tweeted. "The answer is an absolute YES."

Here's the post in question:

The website he links to doesn't say much, but it does have a professional photo of Kid Rock sitting in a star-spangled arm chair with a stuffed deer nearby. It also contains a link to a store where fans can purchase campaign shirts, yard signs, hats and stickers.

Although it seems like he is planning to go into the campaign full force, the rapper has not filed anything with FEC. It's also worth noting the store is through Warner Bros. Records.

Whether it's the real deal or a PR stunt, Twitter was lit with reactions to his post:
