Kylie Jenner's Latest Tweet Might Just Have Killed Snapchat


On Tuesday, Snap responded to a petition with more than 1.2 million signatures asking the company to scrap the redesign and change Snapchat back to the way it was before. Miraculously, this petition has achieved something, albeit on the smallest of scales.

Writing an official response on, the company acknowledged the bumpy rollout, but stopped short of apologizing. Yes, Snapchat is sticking with the changes.

People have been complaining about the app for weeks after an update changed the layout, yet its share price seemed to hold steady. This is "just the beginning" and don't worry, because Snap "will always listen".

Then the perk became a problem. The two have also collaborated together and teamed up previous year to broadcast exclusive video content and sneak peaks of her personal life. Many Snapchat users are upset with the update and find it hard to watch their friend's Snaps, let alone their own.

Once again, EA are skipping out on E3 proper this year, hosting their own off-site event on the weekend prior to the show. There's a new system in place to help fans get to more games and demos that they're interested in trying out, too.

Luckily for the disgruntled, Snap is acknowledging the feedback that the "new Snapchat has felt uncomfortable for many" and has reassured fans that the app will adapt to them over time. The page will get "smarter" and be able to tell between the friends that you care about most based on the number of mutual interactions. This same personalisation is also true of the new Discover, which will adapt to you the more that you use it.

X Snap unveiled the Snapchat redesign in November, intending to make the Snapchat app easier to use and also appeal more to advertisers.
