Kim Kardashian is Being Awarded for "Breaking the Internet"

An inaugural honor from the Webby Awards.

The massive online media presence Kim Kardashian has acquired is not for naught, as she will receive the first-ever Break the Internet Award this month. The Webby Awards, who is also recognizing her husband Kanye West as the 2016’s Artist of the Year, announced Wednesday that the honor — its name a nod to her Paper magazine cover — is “in recognition of her unprecedented success online and the bold and creative ways she has used the Internet, social media, apps and video to connect with a truly global audience.” This is evidenced with the popularity of her Kim Kardashian: Hollywood mobile-app game, her nearly 70 million Instagram followers and more than 45 million Twitter followers and the way almost anything she does sends waves on the Web.

Re/code founder Kara Swisher will present the Webby to Kim when the show streams May 17 on WebbyAwards.com.
