Kim Kardashian: I Love Confronting Haters on Twitter (PHOTO)
Sisters Kim and Khloe Kardashian did an interview with Paper Magazine and discussed all things social media. Kim, 31, and Khloe, 27, have a total of over 21 million followers on Twitter-- but where does Khloe draw the line online?
"I've never ever had a Google alert; I think they are so toxic," Khloe said. "I know what I'm doing, so why do I need to go on a website to see what I'm doing?"
Kim admitted to previously having a Google alert about herself, but insisted she didn't transfer it over to her new phone. "I hardly look on the Internet like I used to," said Kim.
Here are other highlights from their interview-- including how Kim responds to those "things longer than Kim's marriage" tweets:
PAPER: Do you ignore the haters who bad-mouth you on Twitter?
Kim: 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."
PAPER: Do you think you guys would have become famous without the Internet?
Kim: I don't think so. I think a lot of our fanbase, and a lot of our connection with people is Internet-based. I think that the Internet has brought on a different kind of celebrity. We are very well aware of who we are, and what our place is. We are so active on Twitter, on our Facebook pages, we are writing back, we are connecting. We enjoy it.
Khloe: It took me a long time to get on Twitter. Kim was the one who got me on it during a trip to Mexico.
Kim: Ryan Seacrest was like, "You've got to get on Twitter. Just try it. Please." So I went to Mexico, and got the craziest sunburn. I tweeted a picture of it, and within an hour it was on CNN in Mexico. I was like, "I don't understand this," but I've been addicted ever since.
PAPER: Have you ever deleted a tweet?
Kim: Yes! One time I wrote, "Fuck yeah!" and all my younger fans were like, "What are you turning into?" So I deleted it.
Khloe: I don't delete things. You look like such a little punk when you delete things. You should have kept that "Fuck yeah!" 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 un-follows. He un-follows me like once a month. He's bipolar on Twitter.
