Snapchat Opens AR To Ads
In a follow-up to last week’s speculation at Snapchat’s Augmented Reality future, we finally have an answer: Snap is opening up its AR World lenses to advertisers.

Who says 140 characters isn’t enough? Though Twitter has been playing with doubling its character limit, Political Editor Faisal Islam managed to explain the complicated Post-Brexit UK trade plan through emojis, and it’s amazing.
Things are not looking too great to the UK, but it's doesn't seem so bad when you see it in emojis.
