Five Social Media Tips From Kim Kardashian West

"Use Twitter as your Google."

Asa Mathat

Reality TV star and mobile app entrepreneur Kim Kardashian West spoke about mobile technology trends and how she has built her career at today’s Code/Mobile conference in Half Moon Bay, Calif.

Kardashian West is in a good position to give social media advice — she has 24.8 million followers on Twitter and 20 million on Instagram.

And so, some tips on tweeting from Kardashian herself:

  • Social media will make your career.
    “I think my career is so heavily based on social media, and so many opportunities have come my way because of the mobile space.”
  • Use Twitter as your Google.
    “Twitter really became my form of Google — I would just get on Twitter and say, ‘Does anyone know where to go eat in this city?’ … It’s just an amazing focus group.”
  • Instagram is the best social network.
    “It’s intimate. It has a little bit more texture than just words.”
  • Use your BlackBerry Bold for power-tweeting.
    “It’s my heart and soul. I love it, and I’ll never get rid of it.”
  • Don’t be weird and post more than three pictures from one location.
    “I have a three-image rule: In the same setting, I try not to do more than three. It over-saturates my feed.”
  • Bonus tip: Wearable tech is not cute.
    “It’s just not for me.”
