The story of the egg came hot on the heels of a new record for the Fastest time to gain one million followers on Instagram by K-Pop rising star Kang Daniel.

The excitement around the egg account grew as the possibility emerged that breaking the record held by a social media titan celebrity just might be possible.

Kylie took it well

The reality star took it all in stride and responded by posting an older video of her trying to fry an egg on tarmac.

"Take that little egg," she captioned.

Jenner, however, still retains the record title for the highest annual earnings for a celebrity (female, current), which may be some comfort.

In the world of social media, prior to a recent update on Twitter, an image of an egg represented accounts which did not have a profile photo.
