Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West Among Time's Most Influential People on the Internet
Given their proclivity to Twitter rants and nude selfies, it's no surprise that Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have officially been named two of the 30 most influential people on the Internet, at least according to Time. The magazine released its annual list today, and both Kardashian West and West made the cut.
While Time says the list isn't ranked, West is featured front and center as the first person in their gallery. "The artist and entrepreneur has perfected the art of the Twitter spree, sharing candid thoughts that are often just as provocative—if not more so—than his music," the article says, adding that although many of West's tweets can be controversial, he does offer "constructive criticism" of the music and fashion industries.
His wife, on the other hand, is lauded for her massive social following (120 million users across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat). The magazine also touches on her headline-making risqué selfies, as well as her staunch defense of them.
