Imagine Twitter without the Kardashians. Pretty bleak, right? No more Twitpics of Kim Kardashian without makeup or posing in sexy lingerie, or Khloe Kardashian's hilarious and snarky comments. Luckily for us, Kim and Khloe love Twitter and aren't going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, they love the social networking site so much that they did an entire interview and photo shoot with Paper magazine about their Twitter obsession.
Kim admits in the magazine that "the Internet has brought on a different kind of celebrity," and she and her family wouldn't have become as famous as they are without it. However, though she has many fans on Twitter, the social network also opens the door to negativity, but don't think Kim lets cyberbullies bring her down.
“I love writing them back. People will write me, 'My phone battery lasts longer than Kim Kardashian’s marriage,' and I’ll write back, 'Oh, which phone is that?' When people are so stupid, you just have to have fun with it. Someone [without a profile photo] will say I’m fat, or a hairy Armenian, and I’ll write back, 'Oh, that egg picture
of yours is so gorgeous.'"
Twitter has also allowed Kim and Khloe to meet and make celebrity friends, including Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes. But the social network also helps them keep in touch with the rest of their family, including their younger brother, Rob Kardashian, who Khloe says is a bit "bipolar" when it comes to Twitter.
“...Our brother Rob deletes almost every tweet, and follows people and then un-follows them. If he’s in the mood to just date random people, he follows them, then unfollows. He un-follows me like once a month. He’s bipolar on Twitter.”
Whether you love them or hate them, it's hard to miss the various members of the Kardashian and Jenner families on Twitter. In fact, Kim is notorious for over-sharing on Twitter, but tweeting her personal thoughts and photos to her 14.4 million followers hasn't seemed to faze her just yet.
And for those wondering, yes, Kim does read stories on the Internet. She even admitted she's "addicted" to The Huffington Post's Real Estate page, because "it's interesting to see how other people live."
