UPDATE: On June 27, Kim tweeted for the first time since giving birth to her daughter, North. And we have to say, we love the fact that it's this event that made her break her silence.
Okay, guys. We need to talk about Kim Kardashian. The new mom hasn’t uttered a single word on Twitter for 12 full days now, and we’re sort of starting to freak out.
Granted, for most people, a 12-day absence from social media would be no big deal. But this is Kim Kardashian we are talking about. The woman Instagrams and Tweets more times a day than most people do in a week. And she’s been radio silent now for the better part of two weeks.
We get it — she just had a baby. The woman is probably exhausted. Plus, she’s probably extremely busy with breastfeeding and otherwise having to take care of a crying baby. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for social media.
But for a woman who consistently tweeted an average of 6-8 times a day in the weeks leading up to her baby’s arrival, we’ve definitely noticed the silence. She hasn’t tweeted since June 14 — the day before little North was born — and she hasn’t posted a single thing on Instagram since that same day.
So what does this mean? Has Kim really decided to leave the world of social media behind for good? We have no way of knowing for sure. But to be honest, we doubt it. Likely, Kim is just waiting to make her first official statement post-baby to some news outlet. Once that has happened, we assume she’ll be back to tweeting like normal.
That said, the reality star has been vocal about her desire for privacy once her baby comes. We doubt she’ll stop tweeting for good, but she might back away from tweeting every little detail of her life. For now, it looks like we’ll just have to wait and see.
