YesJulz: Her Snapchat Takeover & The Launch Of #YesJulzTV

January 30, 2015

By Alessandra Szul

So, everyone knows Snapchat as the ultimate secret dirty picture-sending platform. With the recent updates of Snapcash, the added “Discover” feature which shares videos and stories from outside publishers such as Vice, Comedy Central, and CNN, as well as people watching their favorite celebrities’ and icons’ Snapchat stories, it proves that “Le Snap” (as Miami’s own YesJulz likes to call it) is on the come-up to become much more than a late-night vice. Throw all that in the mix along with the new throwback BBM-style Snapghost icon that users can scan to add contacts, rather than typing in usernames, and it’s easy to see the growth Snapchat has already achieved, along with it’s potential as the next big thing as a publishing platform.
