The lobbying efforts of Muslim Snapchat users prevailed and on Tuesday, the message app delivered live-stream coverage of Ramadan prayers in the holy city of Mecca. And in return, over a million people tweeted back largely favorable and sometimes even ecstatic tweets.
@yotaric tweeted, “The media showed the true colors of Muslims on snapchat last night. #mecca_live.”
@aly_husein tweeted, “Thanks @Snapchat to let the world know about the peaceful #Islam. #mecca_live.”
