Stats From Kim K's Social Media Return Prove The World Was Lost Without Her

by Alexandra Svokos

Kim Kardashian made a triumphant return to social media -- minus the "West" -- after going on a months-long blackout following her harrowing robbery in Paris.

It was triumphant in more ways than just being a symbol of the fortitude of the human spirit after undergoing trauma.

It was astounding in pure numbers, as well. Her new postings on social media have racked up record-breaking views and likes.

Kim returned to social media on Tuesday.

She posted a photo of her family, Kanye West included, captioning it, simply, "family."


Since then, she posted a handful of more photos of family on Instagram, all very intimate seeming.

She got back on Snapchat on Wednesday.

There, the 36-year-old posted some home videos of her family.

And Kim K was back on Twitter this week as well.

She shared more family photos and spread some love to her fans, who missed her dearly.


It turns out Kardashian's return to social media was a major moment in internet history.

Accept it. Embrace it. Kim Kardashian owns the internet much more than Silicon Valley moguls think they own the internet.

Kardashian got 42.8 million views of her Snapchats within 24 hours, according to TMZ.

Those Twitter posts? They got 84 million impressions in 24 hours. That statistic means that 84 million people saw Kim's tweets in a single day.

In just 24 hours, Kardashian got over 4 million likes on the Instagram photo of her family, which was her first return to social media.

Collecting 4 million likes in 24 hours is massive. That number would place her at about third place in the most liked pictures throughout all of 2016 (Selena Gomez had the top likes for 2016 with 5.9 million, 4.2 million and 4 million).

So within the first week of 2017, Kim Kardashian has done more on the internet than you probably ever will.

Although Kylie was reaching for it in 2016, Kim is making it clear in 2017 that she is the master social media maven in this family -- and the world, really.
