"I don't think [we'd be famous without the internet]," Kardashian said. "I think a lot of our fanbase, and a lot of our connection with people, is internet-based. I think that the internet has brought on a different kind of celebrity."

She continued: "We are very well aware of who we are, and what our place is. We are so active on Twitter, on our Facebook pages, we are writing back, we are connecting. We enjoy it."

Kardashian also revealed that she tries not to worry when she gets negative comments from other users on Twitter.

"I love writing them back," she confessed. "People will write me, 'My phone battery lasts longer than Kim Kardashian's marriage', and I'll write back, 'Oh, which phone is that?' When people are so stupid, you just have to have fun with it.

"Someone [without a profile picture] will say I'm fat, or a hairy Armenian, and I'll write back, 'Oh, that egg picture of yours is so gorgeous'."

Kardashian is currently thought to be dating Kanye West and the pair were photographed holding hands at the opening of Scott Disick's restaurant.

Meanwhile, Kardashian has suggested that she wants to run for mayor of Glendale, California, in order to help the Armenian community.
