Kim Kardashian West: I exist because of social media

KIM Kardashian West doesn't think she'd exist without social media.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star believes the popularity of the show has "evolved" through the family's presence on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

When asked if she would exist without social media, she said: "I don't think so... I don't think social media was that heavy when we started our show, but I think we really evolved with social media."

Kim - who has starred in the reality television show since 2007 - also admitted that her love for social media comes from her love of sharing things.

She told Paper magazine: "I love sharing my world with people. That's just who I am."

Kim - who has over 25 million followers on Twitter - also admitted that she is behind all her own tweets and questioned why other celebrities have teams who use Twitter on their behalf.

She added: "I've always just been open. I've been super-open with my life, and that's just who I am, and that's how my family is, too."

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old reality television star previously revealed that her favourite area of social media is photo-sharing website, Instagram.

She said: "I'm loving Instagram. I think you can be really creative, and a little more intimate. It has more texture than just words, obviously.

"[I have] a three-image rule. In the same setting, I try not to do more than three. It oversaturates my feed."
