Kanye West And Wife, Trump And Cristiano Ronaldo Make Time Magazine’s 30 Most Influential People On The Internet
Time launched its first list of 30 Most Influential People on the Internet last year. This year, Kim Kardashian, her husband Kanye West, her step Dad- Caitlyn Jenner, Drake and Harry Potter creator and author J.K. Rowling have made Time magazine’s list of 30 Most Influential People on the Internet. Kim made the list twice due to her massive social media presence.
Kanye, Time reporter Nolan Feeney writes, is an
“artist and entrepreneur” who “has perfected the art of the Twitter spree, sharing candid thoughts that are often just as provocative—if not more so—than his music.”
“His tweets can be controversial but many do offer constructive criticism of the fashion and music industries,” he adds. “West also used the Internet to shake up the idea of an album as we know it, treating his latest LP, The Life of Pablo, like a work in progress by refusing to sell it (it’s only available on the streaming service Tidal) and promising alterations to its “final” version.”
People outside of the entertainment industry who made Time’s list of 30 Most Influential People on the Internet include the Republican candidate for the 2016 presidential election Donald Trump and Real Madrid football star Cristiano Ronaldo.
Here is the list of the 30 most influential people in no particular order below:
Kim Kardashian West
Josh Holz and Daniel Lara
Johnetta Elzie and DeRay McKesson
Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg (a.k.a. PewDiePie)
Lilly Singh (a.k.a. Superwoman)
Andrew Bachelor (a.k.a. King Bach)
Josh Ostrovsky (a.k.a. The Fat Jew)
Helen Van Winkle (a.k.a. Baddiewinkle)
