SNAPCHAT CEO: Forbes Is Wrong, Here’s My Real Email To Zuckerberg

January 6, 2014







Here's a screengrab from Spiegel of the conversation, coming from November 28, 2012, that sounds entirely reasonable:
Spiegel's response sounds arrogant. Forbes says Zuckerberg ultimately traveled in order to Los Angeles to meet along with Spiegel there. There's a profile that will paints him as being a stuck-up brat. Presumably, Zuckerberg decided to fly to Spiegel on their own accord; Spiegel didn't demand his existence within Los Angeles. Exactly what no-name startup founder tells any CEO worth $20 billion to become able to fly for you to him?
Except the tale is wrong. Which wasn't Spiegel's reaction to always be able to Mark Zuckerberg, at least based on Spiegel that sent us a new screenshot with the email thread.
Evan Spiegel
"Mark Zuckerberg, the particular richest twenty one thing throughout history, reached out to Snapchat's Evan Spiegel...with an invitation, delivered to his private e-mail account: come for you to Menlo Park and also Let's get to end up being able to know every other. Any couple associated with weeks later on Facebook's Snapchat-like app, Poke, was launched. Spiegel...responded for you to his role model thusly: I'm happy to meet you... should you arrived at me."


Evan Spiegel
Lately, the press hasn't been kind to Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel.





According to be able to Forbes, Mark Zuckerberg emailed Evan Spiegel to speak, along with Spiegel gave any disrespectful response:

UPDATE: Spiegel shared more of his email exchange together with Mark Zuckerberg.




Instead, he wrote in which he'd always be happy to meet Zuckerberg, along with he'd allow him to understand the the next occasion he was within the Bay Area.

Today, Forbes has a feature article about Snapchat and also the intro plays correct into Spiegel's negative profile:

He's been portrayed like a brute who screwed more than the former pal in order to located Snapchat. and folks are angry he hasn't apologized to the 4.6 million users whose accounts were hacked about Snapchat.


We're emailing Forbes to end up being able to figure out where the disconnect happened. Together, that they agreed to have Zuckerberg fly to end up being able to Los Angeles (he stated he was heading to be inside city anyhow).
