It's not just that Snapchat lost about $1.3 billion in the couple days after Kylie's criticism of the app... it's also that in that same time frame, Facebook -- and its subsidiary, Instagram, which has a stories feature that competes directly with Snapchat -- gained $16 billion! Whoa!!! Related: Khloé Kardashian Gushes About Stormi's Momma! Here's the math, per TMZ -- on the day Kylie tweeted about Snapchat, Snap Inc.'s market value was $22.78 billion. Just two days later, it was down to $21.41 billion. Oops!!! And Facebook surged at the same time, opening at $516.83 billion at the time of Kylie's tweet and sitting at an incredible $532.86 billion two days later. Yep... that's a $16 billion surge!!! And the other shoe has dropped on Kylie's Snapchat tweet! Couple points here: Kylie, more so than most celebs and influencers, is REALLY influential on social media and also about the business of social media. This is wild!
