Kim Kardashian West on hiatus from the whole world

After Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, she has been off social media. No posting to Instagram, Snapchat or Twitter. Is she another of the many celebs leaving social?

Kim Kardashian West is "taking some much needed time off'' from sharing on her phone app after she was held up at gunpoint in Paris, according to a handwritten noted posted in the app Monday by an assistant.

"But not to worry,'' wrote 'Steph Shep,' the nickname for Kardashian West's assistant, Stephanie Sheppard. "We've called upon Kims (sic) closest friends, fam & yours truly to serve up some exclusives.''

Sheppard promised: "Stay tuned for new posts and app takeovers!!"

The paid app is a rare social media spot where Kardashian West charges money for access. It had been left untouched since the robbery.

The heist, sister Khloe Kardashian said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show about a week after the hold up, was a "wake up call to make a lot of life adjustments'' for all in the reality TV family.

Usually heavy social media sharers, the famous sisters, mother, brother and a universe of friends have scaled way back and Kardashian has kept a low profile.
