While many celebrities' Twitter feeds get them in constant trouble, model Gigi Hadid has her well-placed tweets to thank for much of her success.

"I think I've always been social media savvy. I really get it. It makes sense to me," Gigi told CNN Money. "I think I'm really lucky that I live in a generation of models where we have social media as a tool."

The "social media supermodel" explained that it's most effective "if [fans] like the same pizza as you, or they have the same sense of humor and they really get it or they love your personal style off the runway."

We're huge fans of Gigi's off-the-runway style, like this look from June 22 at LAX Airport. The 20-year-old cover girl was snapped in a long coat, blue jeans, sneakers and a rolling suitcase.
