First came Friendster, then MySpace, followed by Facebook, then Instagram and Twitter came along, and now the social media choice of a new generation is Snapchat. That's why it makes sense for Marvel's attention-loving superhero, Deadpool, to join the popular mobile app.
The beauty of Snapchat is that users can upload images and videos that have a very short lifespan. That quick, finite experience is perfect for an R-rated superhero who wants to post scandalous material but not have it embarrass him later in life.
Check out Deadpool Snapchat announcement tweet below.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Deadpool hits theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.
