It’s been a busy couple of months at Snapchat. With over 50 million snaps shared every day, we’ve had to do a lot of work to make sure our service can continue to support a growing community of snappers. Today, we’re thrilled to announce a major update to our iPhone application – video snaps!

Yesterday was a huge day for us. Millions of people used Snapchat to share their Thanksgiving festivities and send holiday wishes to their friends and family. We sent and received all sorts of turkey snaps – raw turkeys on their way into the oven, silly turkey drawings and steaming hot turkeys doused in cranberry sauce!

We’ve been working day and night to accommodate the massive increases in traffic on the Snapchat service and prepare for a major product update. With millions of Snaps sent every day, sometimes our servers are slower than we’d like. To address that problem, we developed a faster way to write data to our servers. Unfortunately, this morning, when we made that change, some account data was corrupted. This affected 0.3% of our users.

My co-founder Bobby and I met at Stanford in 2009. I was a freshman studying Product Design, and Bobby was a junior working on his BSc in Mathematical and Computational Science. Our first project was Future Freshman – a site that would forever improve the way high school students applied to university. Or so we thought. The site failed to get traction but we learned something important – we loved working together.
