I don’t want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain: Told Snapchat CEO

An Ex-Employee of Snapchat has filled a Law Suit against Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel for mentioning India and Spain is a poor country and he has no intention in expanding it’s services here.

The Case was filed in Monday at LA district Court by an Ex-Employee Anthony Pompliano.

He was fired from Snapchat Inc after discovering ‘massive internal systematic failure’ and reported it to the seniors. Snapchat legal team sacked him saying ‘disgruntled employee fired for poor performance’.

Another serious charge he brought against against Snap Inc that they have recorded false user data and showed inflated metrics to their investors back in March while declaration of IPO.

Snapchat tracks it’s daily active users through two system named as Flurry and Blizzard which showed 95 Million and 97 Million active users. But Snapchat showed 100 million active users. In reply of this Snapchat CEO told ‘no big deal’ in a meeting on 2015.

Some other charges brought against Snapchat are:

  • Snapchat’s chief strategy officer Iman Khan gave him a detailed organisational structure of Facebook to bring out more talents from Facebook to Snapchat.
  • Snapchat claims 87 percent completes app registration, but it’s less than 40%.

Snapchat CEO told “This app is only for rich people. I don’t want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain.”

1One of the interesting fact about this case is that Anthony Pompliano is an ex-Facebook employee.

Snap’s attorneys told that “The simple fact is that he knows exactly nothing about Snap’s current metrics. He and his lawyers are — not to put too fine a point on matters — just making things up.”
