Kim Kardashian-West says her Kimoji emoji app ‘broke the internet’

Kim Kardashian-West may have just achieved what she’s always wanted to do: break the internet.

The phrase, famously coined when Paper magazine used it as a headline alongside a bare-bottomed cover of Kardashian-West, could now be seen as a having a semblance of truth after she appeared to claim her latest tech venture crashed Apple’s App Store.

Kimoji – a series of emojis illustrating things relevant to the reality television star’s life – has already become the most popular downloaded app 24 hours after being released.

In a series of tweets she apologised to the corporation for “breaking” their App Store and expressed her disbelief at the app’s instant popularity.
