Hey there, teens. Let me “rap” at you for just a second. Now, I know what it’s like to be a busy modern teen. It wasn’t that long ago that I was one myself! I know you’re preoccupied with the latest N64 game, going to rainbow parties and rocking out to Moby with your buds, but I’ve got some important news today: Jalopnik is on Snapchat now.


Snapchat, the ethereal content distribution app where kind of like Twitter except the posts disappear so there’s no record of how stupid you’ve been, has proven popular with today’s youth. And so we here at Jalopnik are getting in the game by entrusting it to the one staffer who actually knows how to use it.

What will you get if you “follow” us on Snapchat? Pictures of cars, maybe videos, a glimpse into all our crazy adventures out on the road, and stolen nuclear secrets, most likely. The truth is we’re still figuring out what to do with Snapchat, so if you have ideas, please leave them for us in the comments.


You can follow us by adding user jalopnikdotcom, clicking this link on your phone or mobile device, or “snapping” a pic of the ghost thing below:

Tell your friends! They’ll love it.

And if you prefer social media more old school, you can follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. We know how to use those ones. Kind of.
