Snapchat Rumored to Shut Down After Going Temporarily Down

It’s time to say goodbye to Snapchat – or at least that’s what a new article wants everyone to believe. The article, which turns out to be false, says that the photo and video-sharing application will shut down for good on November 14.

The story was published Tuesday, November 7 on channel45news.com, which is known for creating convincing-looking stories to prank people. A part of the news read that Snapchat’s CEO Eval Spiegel would remove the app from all app stores due to copyright and legal issues with its rivals including Facebook and Instagram.

Many people, however, manage to fall victim to the prank. That’s apparently caused by the fact that the service went temporarily down on the same day. Some users reportedly couldn’t access their respective accounts as the social media vanished for a few hours.

Those people then asked for a confirmation from Spiegel himself, forcing him to take a brief break from his Twitter hiatus. “Nope. Not shutting down… Fake news!” so he replied to some people who reached out to him on Twitter.
