I’m not going to lie, son. When I updated the operating system on my iPhone last night and saw what Instagram did to Snapchat, I laughed for about five minutes straight. Bruh, IG simply refuses to let any other application be great. The Jedi-level of pettiness consistently displayed by the Facebook-owned company is truly hilarious, man. Now, I have to ask the question: can Snapchat survive?
Now, for anyone who doesn’t know what I’m talking about, IG added a new feature in the latest iteration of their app. Essentially, they’re allowing users to post picture/video “stories,” which will disappear after 24 hours. All Snapchat users know this is a blatant bite of what that app does. Now, apparently, Mark Zuckerberg and company tried to buy Snapchat back in 2013 and Snapchat told them to kick rocks. So, what does a gangsta do when a mark ass trick doesn’t want to get down with their crew? Take over the whole block, bitch! Bruh, they straight thugged Snapchat out of their own idea. At this point, once Instagram figures out how to bring the dog filter to all of the twerking IG honies, it’s a SUPER wrap for Snapchat, man.
To be real, this isn’t the first time Instagram has been Petty Wap or Petty Pendergrass. Does anyone remember Vine? IG got them the fuck out of here, man. I had a Vine account for about a smooth three days and cancelled that shit with Flash-esque quickness. Look, I’m a simple dude, son. I’d much rather use one app as opposed to two or three. So, if IG wants to consolidate everything under one roof, I’m here for all of it, man. With that being said, let the pettiness continue!
Ultimately, we’ll see if Snapchat makes it out of this predicament. After CEO Evan Spiegel breaks all of the collectibles in his office, him and his team need to figure out how they’re going to stay alive. If not, the ride was fun while it lasted, son. Good day.
