According to BBC, Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian's famed youngest sister, tweeted her dislike of Snapchat's controversial new design to her 24 million followers on Wednesday, February 21.

Kylie Jenner, the 20-year-old reality star of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" has made a name for herself as a model, social media personality and owner of her successful line of cosmetics called Kylie Cosmetics. Kylie also shares a clothing line with her sister Kendall Jenner and has her own app which was downloaded 1.5 million times within five days of its launch in 2015.

Most recently, Kylie confirmed her long suspected pregnancy to Travis Scott by posting on Instagram and then used the same platform to announce her daughter’s name; Stormi Webster. This is a notable change for Kylie, who has always been very active on Snapchat, marking her as one of the most influential Snapchat accounts ever, since the app's inception in 2012.

Kylie’s tweet

The reality star tweeted; “sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore? Or is it just me… ugh, this is so sad.”

This follows the apps recent update which has seen stories merged with recommended posts causing many users to delete the app in protest reportedly.

Snapchat reportedly took a six percent hit to their stock following the Tweet which has caused them to lose an estimated $1.3 million from its market value.

Kylie Jenner is not the only person to announce their dislike of the new layout, with a petition to force Snapchat to reverse the update garnering over 1.2 million signatures.

Kylie later tweeted “still love you tho snap ... my first love”.

Snapchat’s response

Techcrunch states that Snapchat has responded to the complaints, saying "We hear you, and appreciate that you took the time to let us know how you feel...” but went on to make it clear that this change was just the beginning, and they would not be reversing the most recent update.

The once popular app said in their response that their intention with the recent update was to make it easier for users to connect with accounts that they follow.

Snapchat has stated that further updates will include options for users to personalize their feeds, which should ease some users complaints that they are unable to sort stories from accounts that they follow, recommended accounts as well as personal snaps sent directly.

Meanwhile, the petition titled “Remove the new Snapchat Update” continues to amass signatures in their goal to reach 1.5 million.
