    As much as i hate both Jenner and snapchat I did allow myself a wee chuckle at this



    Reality TV star Kylie Jenner wiped $1.3bn (£1bn) off Snap's stock market value after tweeting that she no longer used its Snapchat messaging app.
    Celebrity Kim Kardashian's half-sister posted: "sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore? Or is it just me... ugh this is so sad."
    Snap's shares sank after Ms Jenner's tweet about Snapchat's re-design to her 24.5 million Twitter followers.
    One million people signed a petition demanding Snap roll back the change.
    After dropping almost 8%, shares in Snap closed 6% 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.
    Snapchat is facing intense competition from Facebook's Instagram - especially for celebrity users - and Ms Jenner's attack comes at a time when investors are already worried.
    Ms Jenner later tweeted a follow-up: "still love you tho snap... my first love".
    Snap has rejected complaints about November's re-design to its messaging app, with its boss Evan Spiegel saying earlier this month that users just needed time to get used to it.
    Mr Spiegel had something to soften the blow, though, with news on Thursday that his total pay last year was a staggering $637.8m.
    It is thought to be the third-highest annual package ever received by a company's chief executive.
    The remuneration was, however, heavily boosted by the award of shares when the company listed on the stock market.
    Mr Spiegel's basic salary for last year was a more modest $98,078.
    The package trails the 2007 and 2008 compensation for Daniel Och, head of hedge fund Och-Ziff Capital Management.
    He received annual packages of $918.9m in 2007 and $1.19bn in 2008.

    Can we build a wall around the United States please? A nation that idolises the utterly talentless Kardashians so much that a tweet from one of them wipes billions off the stock market is one that needs to be locked away into the country equivalent of a mental asylum.

    The growing power of celebrities with a platform to deliver a statement instantly to tens of millions of followers. It raises the concern about possible stock manipulation.

    To be honest if a Kardashian can get rid of almost 2 billion, then crypto-currencies stand no choice because if they are projections, it can wiped out within a minute, remembering one of the biggest crypto currencies, Bitcoin, only has a share price worth 10,000. Good luck world...

    The Kardashian's IMO are, as above, talentless and boring people - don't know what people see in them (although most of her fan base are probably 10 year olds, thinking her make-up is amazing).

    I'm sure the real world will hit them hard then, when they realise there are more important things to care about

    Her opinion matters because Snapchat is aimed primarily at basic white girls lmao. She is the archetypal user. If she's had enough then ofc Becky and the gang are gonna follow.
