Right now, Keeping Up With The Kardashians fans all over the world are obsessively checking on the latest happenings in the Kardashian-Jenner crew, so they can comment or @reply "Queen," "Mom," or "Follow me."
There are a select few fans, however, who are fully dedicated to this lifestyle, rather than acting like a programmable bot. These fans have their goddamn filters at the ready to assemble collages, warm images up, flip them, and put their watermark on it. Their efforts don't go unnoticed — accounts like @KardashianNavy and the rather intensely named @MolestMeKardash are just a couple of the several fan accounts Kim Kardashian follows on Twitter.
As Kueen Kim recently hit the big Three Five and celebrated with friends and family by watching a Steve Jobs biopic, she felt the need to throw a party for her hard-working and dedicated fans. After all, it's not easy to constantly keep hundreds of thousands of Kardashian fans alerted on the latest happenings.
