Is Snapchat down?

Snapchat is a mobile app that allows users to send and receive "self-destructing" photos and videos. Photos and videos taken with the app are called snaps. The sender of a message is able to determine the period that a message can be viewed by setting a limit between one and ten seconds.

    @danadearmond @FootSniffah @babecolate There is plenty of other similar options to consider, like MyPulse, ItsMyGirl, RingHop ShoutWall, ManyVids Crush, MFC Share, iWantFanClub, and w/ Snapchat: FanCentro and SeeSnaps. I’m sure there are others, this is all off the top of my head. Oh yeah, SupeApp went down pre-FOSTA.

    @alondrakings It takes a 15 second email and 5 or so business days to get your money back from MV for this error (it's happened to me twice). At which point they can buy Snapchat. I'd they keep it up report them to MV, they actually care n take care of their shit in my experience
