Why did Time choose the Kendall and Kylie? Here is the description:

"Together, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians co-stars hosted red-carpet events, released clothing and nail polish lines and even published a dystopian young-adult novel this past summer (though yes, they had some help). But they’ve had solo success too—Kendall with modeling (she’s walked the runway for designers like Marc Jacobs) and Kylie with pseudo-entrepreneurship (she’s launching a line of hair extensions and hopes to get into acting). Next up: a multimillion-dollar mobile game? —N.F."

Will Smith’s son Jaden Smith also made the list for his social media presence. "His real legacy may well be his Twitter musings, which are equal parts absurdist ("Anything You See In Any Magazine Ever Is Fake.") and insightful ("Once You Witness A Cycle Enough Times You Step Out Of It."), earning him more than 5 million followers and labels like, “Confucius for the Internet age.”” the magazine explained.
