Snapchat Continues Ecommerce Experimentation — This Time With Nike For Air Jordan Drop

Reality star Kylie Jenner sent out a tweet on Wednesday that might have possibly made Snapchat's stock prices drop.

Kylie Jenner, one of the first tranche of celebrities whose fame grew primarily on Snapchat over other social media firms, shared her own disappointment with the app on Twitter: "sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore?"

The promise came in an official response from the company to a petition in which 1.2 million signees asked the company to undo its recent Snapchat redesign.

The social media starlet recently made her return to all of her platforms following the birth of her daughter, but there's one that has not been graced with her face. Everyone seems to hate the updated app, which is why a petition has managed to garner a stunning 1.2 million signatures since the update began rolling out.

Snapchat claimed that it rolled out the re-design in a bid to make the app easier to use and to implement a dedicated feed for news content.

He added that it was his government had formed an aviation policy that was not undertaken by any of the previous governments. The second phase, to be completed by 2022, will take the handling capacity to 25 million passengers.

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

Kylie Jenner had been using Snapchat in the past in order to show off her new look with a new haircut, or give a glimpse into her Kardashian family and her relationship with her baby daddy Travis. During a conference speech last week, Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel essentially said "get used it", when discussing the update. She regularly posted public videos, called Stories, showing her hanging out with friends or promoting her cosmetics line. 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". "We are very excited for what's ahead", the statement read.

"Our design and engineering teams are constantly monitoring the rollout of the redesign and making improvements based on what we learn from our community and their usage of Snapchat".

25-year-old boyfriend Travis, real name Jacques Webster, admitted their baby girl is "beautiful" in the first public comment ever made since her February 1 birth.
