It's been two months since Kim Kardashian teased her forthcoming Snapchat account, which she did the same way all important announcements are made on the social media network: via DJ Khaled. Though she's already adept at the app's more complicated features, she finally lived up to that original promise today.

"Snapchat alert!" she tweeted around midnight last night. "I'm finally on. Add me KimKardashian."

Like all celebrities on the app, Kim K's account is denoted by a single emoji (Kylie Jenner's is a crown, Gigi Hadid's is a kissing lip print). Can you guess which one is Kim's? Hint: It's one of the two used in the Tweet below.
