It is time! By now, I have upped my Snapchat game… We have all upped our Snapchat game! Snapchat right now has so much in common with the early days of Twitter, it’s ridiculous! There is the active community that is in love with the platform, and then there is the normal folks who “Just don’t get it.” But they will!
There are influencers who are embracing Snapchat early and then there are the folks who, like Twitter in the early days, are already trying to turn the platform into a sales tool. SMH.
Snapchat right now, like Twitter in the early days, is just about to explode in popularity and is already showing signs of going mainstream. Except, there is one small difference, the numbers. I mean, Twitter’s user base is nice and all, but Snapchat in its early days (now) is already bigger than Twitter has ever been! 10 billion daily views? Are you KIDDING me?!
So yea, if you are not yet snappin, get on that. Oh, two more things about how the two platforms are similar…
One? Discovery is still broken, and will most likely remain so for the foreseeable future. Will will fix that.
The second thing? In the early days of Twitter, I wrote these:
And now, for Snapchat, I already wrote this: 50 Consistently Interesting People to Follow on Snapchat. So here goes the second post to help you discover interesting people to follow on Snapchat.
Here is me on Snapchat. I try to keep my snaps interesting and valuable. I snap about tech, startups, cars, music, family, and the occasional (ok, maybe a bit more than “occasional) rant.
Follow me here or by scanning the picture below.
Also, don’t miss these posts I wrote about the Snapchat!

Ok, now back to people to follow…
Here are the 50 people I recommend you follow for great snaps. The criteria by which I added people to this list is simply valuable and entertaining snaps. They all share good content. To be clear, I don’t follow everyone on this list because some of the people here share content that is not necessarily within my areas of interest, but they all share good content.
You can either add these awesome folks by saving them in your phone gallery then scanning them in Snapchat or open the links below the pictures on your phone and it will automatically open Snapchat and let you add them!
And the links:
- Yours truly
I will remind you that I tried to mix things up and not only share tech or startup folks on this list. In fact, there are some seriously out of left field snappers here, people you won’t find on any other list, but are well worth following, so follow em all and if you find some of these people to be irrelevant to you, you can always remove after!
Hope this list enhances your snapping experience!
