This One Kylie Jenner Tweet Cost Snapchat $1 Billion in Market Value

Snapchat stock drops on news Kylie Jenner no longer uses the app

Though it may have seemed like a harmless comment, seconds after the new mum posted this tweet Snapchat shares sank by 7.2 per cent, wiping out $1.7 billion in market value.

During her high-profile "secret" pregnancy, Kylie Jenner pretty much went off the social media grid altogether for several months.

"With the release of the new Snapchat update, many users have found that it has not made the app easier to use, but has in fact made many features more hard", the petition reads.

KitGuru Says: While I am not the most avid Snapchat user, I have noticed some flaws.

Existing-home sales down for the second consecutive month in January
The median existing-home price for all types of housing in January was $240,500, up 5.8% from January 2017's figure of $227,300. The total supply of homes for sale fell to 1.52 million last month, the fewest for any January since records began in 1999.

She followed up with another tweet: "Still love you tho snap.my first love".

After the recent objection of Snapchat redesign, the company has made a decision to bring some changes in design. Now, there's a designated page for publishers and celebrities, and a separate page for friends.

Though the Petro's value is tied to crude oil, it doesn't actually translate to ownership of any concrete assets. The opposition-controlled National Assembly has opposed the idea of the petro, labelling it illegal.

Earlier, Snapchat's update caused a separation of media from users' friends from professionally produced content into a separate feed. As of midday, shares were down more than 8 percent for the day, at times pushing below the company's $17 IPO price.

Those worries subsided somewhat when Snap reported February 6 that it added almost 9 million daily active users during the last three months of 2017, bringing its total audience to 187 million.

Snap Inc. has responded to a widely-signed petition demanding it roll-back an unpopular redesign of its Snapchat mobile apps for iPhone and Android.

There has been a "significant jump" in negative reviews about Snapchat, according to Citigroup analyst Mark May, who said the criticism was deterring users and could hurt the company financially, according to Bloomberg.

Snap boss Evan Spiegel had something to soften the blow, though, with news his total pay was a huge $600m past year.
