The new Snapchat update was released earlier this week… and most people are not happy about it. The update completely revamped the layout and usability of the platform; I’ve been using consistently since the first day of the release and I still can’t figure it out. Twitter is exploding with petitions, pleas to restore the old version and angry opinions, so we pulled the most relatable tweets that perfectly summarize our opinions on this ridiculous update:
1. Even Kylie Jenner isn’t happy about it.
New mom Kylie Jenner is the queen of Snapchat– she has the most followers on the platform by FAR. She took to twitter to ask her followers about the update…
Mm just saw the new Snapchat.. I don’t know how i feel about it! What do you guys think?

… and concluded it was not the greatest.
2. Don’t mess with Chrissy.
3. Not saying it’s Trump’s fault, but…
the snapchat update didn’t happen when obama was president das all i’m sayin

4. This person took the liberty of writing Snapchat a letter on behalf of all of us.
5. And for the few that haven’t gotten the update yet… Snapchat autoupdate is coming for you…

6. … and it’s going to hit you hard.
7. Honestly, who thought of this layout and algorithm?
the snapchat update doesn’t even make sense there is no logic to it whatsoever i think they all just got wicked high and they were like “guys… time is a fucking illusion”

8. The auto-update is what none of us asked for but got anyway, and is extremely reminiscent when we all somehow got U2’s album downloaded onto our phones.
9. But seriously, has anyone managed to figure this sh*t out?
This Snapchat update is the equivalent to taking papers from class and throwing it in your backpack without putting it in a folder

10. There must have been SOMEONE at Snapchat HQ who had a bad feeling about this.

14. Oh the things we would go through to not have this update.
Things better than this new @Snapchat update:
• getting hit in the shins with a scooter
• camo cargo shorts
• stubbing your toes on the coffee table
• paper cuts in the webs of your fingers#boycottsnapchat

15. Messy, packed, and busy…
The new Snapchat update looks like a Forever 21 store

16. This guy is telling it like it is.
I️ think snapchat just provided the worst update a multi billion dollar company could ever possibly provide to an app that was so unique
— Bucks (@ryanhughestv) February 12, 2018
17. Could the new Snapchat update be a step back in technology?
18. Ok, well at least there’s ONE good thing about the update.
19. Anyone else seem to lose track of their friends with the new Snapchat update?
20. Aaaaannnnndddd it seems like we’re stuck with it for a while. Great.
