5 Celebrities who changed the value of the stock market through social media!
Almost a week ago we witnessed the craziest thing happening when Kylie Jenner published a tweet on twitter saying that she no longer is using the application, Snapchat! The tweet dropped the value of Snapchat by 1.3 billion dollars! Even though she later posted something else to make up for it but you cannot fix what has been broken, right?! Who would have thought that social media has such a deteriorating effect on the stock?! If you thought this was the first time a value dropped through social media, you are wrong. Here are some other examples!
1. Kylie Jenner
Why don’t we dig a little bit deeper into the mess Kylie left on the value of Snapchat?! On 21st of February, the star posted a tweet, "sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore? Or is it just me... ugh this is so sad.". Only this tweet, single-handedly, managed to drop the stock market value of Snapchat by $1.3bn (£900m)! Later the same day, the star tweeted, "still love you tho snap ... my first love", however, the damage was already done! Yesterday, Stormi, her daughter, made her Snapchat debut hoping the value goes back to where it was before!

2. Donald Trump
Donald John Trump born on the 14th of June 1946 is the 45th president of the United States. Before being a president, he was a businessman and was quite known for being a television personality. The TV shows he is known for are, The Apprentice which was a reality game show, the popularity of the show granted him a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and also the very popular show, Miss Universe, and Miss USA. He actually owned these two from 1996 to 2015. Except for all these, he is also known for being a wrecker!
What do we mean?! Well, the ones who follow him on Twitter might have a better understanding of the damage he did to the stock market! One of the most known examples is this tweet, "Boeing is building a brand new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion. Cancel order!". Right with that tweet, he dropped the stock by $2 (£1.43)! And this was not the only time! The other one was a consequence of this tweet, "The F-35 program and cost is out of control. Billions of dollars can and will be saved on military (and other) purchases after January 20th." $3.5bn (£2.5bn) drop!
