Did Kylie Jenner’s Snapchat Tweet Sink Company Stock?
Kylie Jenner: New mom, business mogul...killer of enterprise?
Jenner, an undisputed queen of social media, may have unintentionally destroyed one of her favorite (or...previously favorite) sites Wednesday (February 21) when she issued a single unfavorable tweet. Because as the adage goes, if you don't have anything nice to say, you may as well tank a media magnate.
"sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore? Or is it just me... ugh this is so sad," Jenner tweeted before doing a little bit of damage control, and following up with "still love you tho snap ... my first love."
Still, according to TMZ, the destruction may have already been done, as the site reported that the next day, Snapchat's stock dropped had seven percent. Or, to put it in terms of cold, hard cashola, a whopping $1.3 billion.
The evidence isn't all there, though — while Jenner boasts a combined 128.5 million Twitter and Instagram followers, there's no saying for sure whether she was the exclusive catalyst to the stock drop. TMZ also points out that some users are hugely dissatisfied with Snapchat's recent design overhaul.
Either way, some fans felt the need to check Jenner for her comments, and insist Snapchat was still very much worth keeping around.
"Nope, I still check it. I enjoy the new update, it makes sense to me. Adapt and overcome," one follower replied to her tweet, while another noted "when kylie jenner doesn’t like the snapchat update, snapchat needs to go back to the old version."
