Spiegel

Cofounder / CEO

These days, Snapchat might not be as present in the cultural conversation as competing apps such as TikTok, but Spiegel’s social media platform, which started as a Stanford class project, is still showing signs of growth, reporting 17% increases in both daily active users and revenue year-over-year for Q2 2020. In June, Spiegel contributed to the political conversation, writing that Snapchat would no longer promote American accounts associated with those inciting racial violence after the company announced it had ceased promoting President Trump’s account on its Discover platform. Over the summer, it also launched a suite of features including voter registration tools and informational guides, designed to encourage young voters to turn out for the 2020 general election.
