After celebrating her 34th birthday in Las Vegas, reality star Kim Kardashian jetted off to San Francisco where she and hubby Kanye West took in a Giants game at the same stadium where Kanye proposed last year. Kim's trip to SF wasn't just all pleasure, though, the 34-year-old had some business to take care of, too.

Speaking at Recode's Code Mobile Conference on Monday, the social media maven talked about the growing role that tech plays in the lives of celebrities.

Kim, who has 20 million Instagram followers and almost 25 million Twitter followers, said that she is careful to keep boundaries when it comes to sharing on social media, especially when it comes to her daughter.

"I took a while to share things with my daughter, and still don't share everything they do on a daily basis," she said. We know we wouldn't complain if Kim shares more pics of her adorable daughter, but we understand why she wants to keep some parts of her life private.

She also said that those rumors about her getting paid $10,000 per tweet are false, joking, "I would be tweeting every two seconds if it was true." Fair enough!

When asked why, despite all of her success, people don't take her "seriously," Kim pointed out that people don't understand how hard she really works.

"I pride myself with my work ethic, and I work really hard," she explained. "I think when people hear that I might have gotten success off of a 'reality show,' they take that as a negative. We're in our tenth season. We have more episodes than 'I Love Lucy.' We have so many milestones that people don't think about."

"I wake up every single day at 6 am, and go to the gym, and get my daughter up, feed my baby, film all day, sometimes don't finish until 8 or 9 pm, and that's every single day, six days a week, for five months straight while we're filming ... I don't think reality TV gets the respect it deserves," she continued.

We give Kim a ton of credit. Not only is she managing the reality show and all of her side business ventures, she's also a wife AND a mother and she seems to be doing a pretty amazing job of juggling everything at once.
