Written by Mukund Madhav

Evan Spiegal the CEO of Twitter yesterday made a statement saying India “too poor” to focus in expanding in user’s base.

The incident happened when a fellow employee from Snapchat asked from the CEO the reason for slow growth of Snapchat in India. He intervened the employee and said that ” Snapchat is for rich people. I don’t wish to expand it in poor countries like India and Spain”.

The incident came to light from a report by Variety and caused the trend of hashtags like #boycottsnapchat #uninstallsnapchat in Twitter and other social media sites.
