Replay? Am I opting in to letting my snaps get replayed or am I enabling the ability for me to replay snaps. I always felt like this was an easy monetization win for Snapchat. I bet they'd make a mint if users had to pay a dime to replay a snap.

They probably did this intentionally to increase word-of-mouth for the same reason as their easter eggs (http://ryanhoover.me/… See more
