It has been reported that Snapchat has 150 million users per day making the four year old messenger service more popular than Twitter in terms of daily users.
Snapchat has been rapidly expanding thanks in a large part to its popularity with young people.
Just back in December the app had 110 million users, said a source who asked not to be named.
Twitter, which was founded back in 2006 has an average of around 140 million daily users.
There is no doubt that Twitter is still extremely popular but since jumping onto the scene it has been outstripped by Instagram, Facebook and no Snapchat.
Snapchat is viewed as a fun way of communicating with users being able to send annotated selfies and short videos.
Some inventive creations have allowed users to swap faces and transform themselves into puppets thanks to imaging software.
In March this year, Facebook tried to follow suit with the announcement that they had purchased a photo manipulation tool called Masquerade.
The app frequently encourages people to use the features such as “Snapstreak”, which calculates the number of consecutive days that you have been communicating with your closest friends.
A popular feature is the fact that news and Live Stories are removed from the app after 24 hours in order to stop it from becoming cluttered.
It appears that Snapchat has many admirers with even Twitter’s CEO, Jack Dorsey saying that the messaging service was “very modern” at a recent Recode technology conference.
He went on to bravely acknowledge that Twitter can be “confusing and alienating” – something that he is trying to fix.
