Like many teens her age, Kendall Jenner spends a lot of time on Twitter. But since her tweets are watched closely by the tabloids, sometimes they can get the reality show star in trouble. According to a March 16 report by MediaTakeOut, one of Kendall’s tweets indicates that she’s using Twitter to look for sex.
A headline on the website proclaims, "Kim Kardashian's LITTLE SISTER Kendall Is ALREADY Following In Her FOOTSTEPS . . . She's On Twitter Talking About How She Wants D**K!!!"
However, this is what Kendall Jenner actually tweeted: "I want a little dik dik! #GoogleIt." MTO acknowledges that a dik-dik is just a type of animal, and it’s not hard to see why Kendall wants one. The cute critters are tiny antelopes that are only about a foot tall. However, the website claims that Kendall knew exactly what she was doing, and it’s likely that she did since she made sure to tell her followers to look up what a dik-dik is on Google.
Kendall’s tweet was probably just supposed to be funny, and it’s a little silly that MTO tried to make such a big deal out of it since it’s actually pretty tame for the Twitter rambling of a 17-year-old. However, Kylie and Kendall Jenner do spend a shocking amount of time on Twitter, so maybe Kris Jenner needs to work on ending her kids’ addiction to social media. It can’t be healthy that Kylie Jenner is already mimicking Kim Kardashian by tweeting multiple photos and videos of herself every day, and Kendall has admitted that she struggles with some of the “haters” that she encounters through social media.
Unfortunately, Kris Jenner probably wants her daughters to continue to constantly tweet. They’re part of the Kardashian brand, so she likely expects them to follow in Kim Kardashian’s footsteps by doing everything they can to make sure that people keep paying attention to them.
However, young celebs like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber know all too well how harmful using social media can be. Miley has threatened to quit Twitter multiple times, and Justin recently had to apologize for dissing Lindsay Lohan when he used Instagram to express his feelings in an impassioned rant. Fans love being connected to their favorite stars through social media, but sometimes it’s not a good thing that celebrities can instantly share their feelings with their fans. They need to put more thought into what they share with the world since so many eyes will see it, and what they write could damage their image or hurt other people.
So do you think that Kendall and Kylie Jenner are hurting themselves by spending so much time on Twitter?
