Earlier criticisms

This is not the first time that the Kardashian sisters took a jibe at a social media platform. Earlier in 2018, Kylie Jenner slammed the redesign of Snapchat, which is a competitor of Instagram. For the unversed, it also led to a drop in the parent company Snap’s shares by 7%. 

Instagram’s response

It wasn’t quite long after Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian made pleas to Instagram to stop promoting short-form videos or reels. Now, the latest that we know is that the social media platform has reportedly announced plans to make some changes! If we go by the words of Adam Mosseri, Instagram Head, the app is all set to eliminate full-screen videos and images and reduce the number of posts on user feeds. 

As published in Rolling Stone, Mosseri said, “I’m glad we took a risk — if we’re not failing every once in a while, we’re not thinking big enough or bold enough. But we definitely need to take a big step back and regroup. [When] we’ve learned a lot, then we come back with some sort of new idea or iteration. So we’re going to work through that.”

Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy rumors

A few days ago, Kylie Jenner made news owing to her alleged pregnancy rumors. Recently, Kylie and Travis Scott made news after having made speculations about their third baby with a recent social media interaction. As per the latest reports, it all started with Travis Scott’s new social media post that featured him posing outdoors as he wrote in the caption, “Got there in a New York minute.”

Travis’ fans were quick enough to ask the rapper and request him to drop his latest album at the earliest. However, his ladylove Kylie Jenner seemed to have something else in her mind, and her comment drew everyone’s attention immediately. It is because the diva dropped a series of pregnant emojis while leaving a comment on Travis Scott’s post. Now, her comment has left the fans confused, who wondered whether she was hinting at her third pregnancy or if it was just a playful comment.

It is not the first time that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott grabbed headlines. Recently, the couple also sparked engagement rumors when the fans spotted Jenner rocking a massive ring on her finger. Apart from that, a fake account in the name of Kourtney Kardashian’s son Mason Disick also claimed that the duo is all set to tie the knot.
