Kylie Jenner's Latest Tweet Might Just Have Killed Snapchat

Share

On Tuesday, Snap responded to a Change.org 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 change.org, 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".

BSO is planning to launch two inflatable modules called B330-1 and B330-2, which will measure 55 feet in length respectively. Bigelow Space Company was formed to manage the modules while Bigelow Aerospace is in charge of sending them into orbit.

While Instagram has a long-running reputation for copying features, for the first time Snapchat has finally copied from their rival by including gif stickers in their app. First off, the latest update brings GIF stickers, which are now available via Giphy.

Correlation does not imply causation, and Jenner's tweet was not the only reason why Snap's Wall Street standing diminished on Thursday.

Her recent comments about Snapchat show the perils of alienating high-profile users. Chief among the complaints is the decision to move Stories-publicly available content that can be viewed by a users' friends for 24 hours-into the inbox where direct messages are sent and received. 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.

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.
