Snapchat Now More Popular Than Twitter Among 18-34s

Remember those crazy Snapchat guys who turned down a $3 billion offer from Facebook for their zero revenue firm? Bloomberg reports they are now in funding talks which value the app at $10 billion. Data from Business Insider shows that 1 in 3 US smartphone users between the ages of 18 and 34 are using Snapchat, twice as many as nine months ago and considerably more than Twitter. If Facebook had bought them out Mark Zuckerberg’s company would now own the three most popular social networks in America…

    I read the other day that some 18 year old made over £500,000 revenue last year from a Youtube video of her putting her make-up on.

    (I just realised that that sounds just like those e-mails I keep deleting)

    I’m not a fan of IQ as a measure of anything.

    Trying to express an opinion with any kind of precision on such a limited format is a sure way to find yourself misunderstood. It’s no wonder so many celeb’s find themselves in hot water from poorly judged tweets.

    This is all very well for Snapchat, but can one express synthetic outrage at the situation in Gaza for ones followers or a provide spontaneous outpouring of grief at the death of Robin Williams on Snapchat ? Millions can on Twitter quite well enough thank you very much.

    Hey I think I found a use for Twitter says:

    I use Twitter not to Twit but to follow blogs to see what their latest topic is.
    If it’s of interest I’ll visit the site.
    I find it saves me time not having to go to each individual site.

    Can we go back to an economic model where people make physical goods.

    Today a young chap meets a girl in a club they swap phone numbers,
    he then sends her a photo of his dick,
    If she fancies him she’ll respond by sending a photo of her arse/side boob or clunge.
    No having to wait ages to find out what you’re prospective partner is packing in their pants/knickers like we did in the old days.
    Far more civilised….I think?

    Really? Social networks are wonderful. They allowed us to blame Putin within minutes of the tragic news of Malaysia Airlines MH17 – something that in the heyday of the dead trees press would have taken us weeks. A real social revolution. What colour would you like?

    With so much time to devote to being the site pedant I suggest you are the thick lefty mong.

    I dive in and out and don’t have the time, nor can I be be arsed quite frankly, to correct typos or proof read prior to hitting ‘submit’

    Get a life – always assuming your Mum will allow you to be out after 10:00pm (I assume you still live at home even though you’re 40)

    Pedantist says:

    Maybe the verb ‘is’ relates to ‘thing’ rather than ‘social networks’.

    ‘Social networks’ when it is a body or a group may also be regarded as singular and thus it would be correct for ‘thing’ to be in the singular.

    In which case Maggie’s grammar is correct

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
