Have you gone on a Twitter rant lately? Posted a naked selfie? Gone on a twitter rant about the naked selfie you posted? Well you might want to give it a chance because besides being what I imagine a very liberating experience, it can also land you a spot on Time‘s 30 Most Influential People on the Internet. The list was announced today with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian being two of the most obvious choices. The magazine included Kanye for perfecting “the art of the Twitter spree, sharing candid thoughts that are often just as provocative – if not more so – than his music.” Kim's recent headline making nude picture (and her combined 120 million social media followers) helped secure her a spot on the list.

The other influencers on the list can best be described as your dream dinner party guests with James Corden, J.K. Rowling, Caitlyn Jenner, and Drake all being included. (Donald Trump also made the list, but much like his tweets we'll choose to ignore that). There are also the assorted Vine and Youtube stars like the kids behind the Damn, Daniel meme, Lele Pons, and Lilly Singh. All of whom I had to Google to make sure I knew who they were making me feel like the oldest person on the planet.

You can see the full list here, and then start planning the how, why and what platform you'll need to take over the world.
