Redesign here to stay: Snapchat responds to users' disstress

24 February 2018

Last night Kylie Jenner did exactly the same when she voiced her concern about Snapchat and how hostile the app has become thank to their latest update.

Fortunately for Snapchat, it's still possible Jenner could be wooed back, based on a tweet she sent a few minutes after her initial diss.

'Sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore? "Ugh this is so sad".

Following that tweet, which was liked more than 260,000 times, Snap Inc's stock price plummeted by 7.2 percent.

After dropping nearly 8 percent, shares in Snap closed 6 percent down on Wall Street, and are now back near the $17 price at which the shares were listed when the company floated on the stock market.

Ten minutes after the first tweet, Jenner said she still has love for the app.

The Iranian warning comes days after Israel warships destroyed Tehran-supplied anti-aircraft batteries in Syria used in an unprovoked attack against the Israeli Air Force.

"Still love you tho first love", she tweeted.

"Still staring at her all day", Jenner told a fan of her newborn. More than one million people signed a petition for Snapchat to undo its redesign. The petition, which has managed to accumulate almost 1.5 million signatures since the update began rolling out, has finally received an official response from Snap (via BGR). The campaign asked the company to bring the old design back. While her sister, Kim Kardashian, is known for her Instagram savvy, Jenner's popularity on Snapchat during its early years helped not only boost her profile but also the Snapchat brand. Instead, it noted that this is just the "beginning, and we will always listen closely to find new ways to make the service better for everyone".

In the latest blow for the controversial redesign of the app, Queen of Snapchat Kylie Jenner, who has the most followers on the platform, declared that she no longer used it.

Snapchat's new app has been continuously and widely criticised since it started rolling out worldwide in the last couple of weeks.

Meanwhile, Snap Inc said that its Chief Executive Evan Spiegel received $637.8 million as total compensation previous year after the company went public.
