Snapchat, the disappearing photo sharing app with animated filters, found itself in the crossfire of angry Twitter users in India over a report about its CEO’s alleged comment about India being poor.
The hashtag ‘BoycottSnapchat’ was trending over the weekend with several netizens vowing to uninstall the Snapchat app and give it a low rating on Google’s app store.
And while the tweets very angry and combative, some users resorted to humour to put their point across. Here are the top 10 wittiest tweets.

CEO of Snapchat: Rich.
Mukesh Ambani: really really really rich.
You/Me/India: Tweeting about two rich dudes.

And in a bizarre twist, it was Snapdeal who got caught in the crossfire, with many Indians uninstalling the Indian online shopping app instead of Snapchat.

Oops I deleted Snpadeal instead of Snapchat. Not that I needed either of them. As a patriotic Indian I only use Amazon.
