Kim Kardashian credits (blames?) social media for her career

Famous for being famous, Kardashian tells Recode's Kara Swisher she owes her career to social media.

Selfies have been very, very good to Kim Kardashian. This is, after all, the woman who won a special Webby award last month for "breaking the Internet."

On Monday, Kardashian talked to Recode's Kara Swisher about her willingness to bring the Web to its knees. (Her Webby acceptance speech, "Nude selfies till I die," sort of hints at her technique.)

"My personality has never been, 'I'm such a feminist and follow me and be naked!'" Kardashian said in a podcast. "You don't have to look at what I do."

During the podcast she also talked about her Kimoji app, which lets people express their deepest feelings using emojis of Kardashian's butt, breasts or facial expressions.

She also said she's almost ready to give up her favorite BlackBerry, the Bold, which is getting harder to find.

"I do still love my buttons, but I think eBay has almost run out of this model," she told Swisher.
