On Sunday, she re-tweeted her first tweet all the way from 2009, before she was Kim Kardashian West, and way before she became a mom, law student, and criminal justice activist. The tweet? "Hey guys it’s Kim Kardashian! I finally signed up for Twitter! There are a few fakes so just know this is the real me!!!" In the ten years since then, Kim has become one of the most-followed people on social media, with over 62 million Twitter followers and over 149 million Instagram followers. And she's gone from a Twitter newbie to someone who memorably set the platform ablaze when she infamously called Taylor Swift out and started the #TaylorSwiftIsASnake party.
