Kylie Jenner 'sooo over' Snapchat - and Wall Street panics

kylie-jenner-2.png?auto=compress&crop=to

The stock market value of Snap, owner of the Snapchat messaging app, fell $1.5bn after reality TV star Kylie Jenner said she no longer used it.

Ms Jenner told her 24.5 million Twitter followers: "sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore?"

She was adding her powerful social media voice to the growing criticism of Snapchat's re-design.

Shares in Snap fell more than 8.4% to $17.8, falling back close to the $17 price at which the shares were listed when the company floated on Wall Street.

Ms Jenner, the half-sister of celebrity Kim Kardashian, tweeted: "sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore? Or is it just me... ugh this is so sad."

She did, though, later tweet a follow-up: "still love you tho snap... my first love".

Snapchat has rejected complaints about the re-design, with Mr Spiegel saying earlier this month that users just need time to get used to it.

Shook this wasn't made by @Economy

What a Kardashian giveth, they taketh away, and usually replace with something equally as vain and obnoxious. They won't kill Snapchat without giving us something else to move to. That would be bad for business :green:

Spoiler

I give these girls too much credit

I agree. The introduction of Insta stories completely made me forget about Snapchat. I occasionally go on there to check out the face filters, but yeah, Insta won

She's popular because people like you keep asking that question :triggered:

Not to be rude or anything but let that family be. It's easy to ignore them if you don't care for them, but the fact that people still hate on them/commenting about them is something that the Kardashians/Jenners capitalize on and it works (e.g. Kylie launched her cosmetics company and is now worth more than her sister Kim).

People can hate on them and complain about their lack of talent but they would just be creating the very fame and popularity they despise. The irony :laughga:

No shade, but are you f*cking kidding me??? How can a girl with too many followers have such an impact on stock market value with a tweet? This is why I hate the Kardashians, their impact is insane, and they have more power than they know what to do with :saladga:
