How is someone supposed to use this with that much angle? What user, is using their phone sideways like that?
A feature for narcissistic teens who text a lot and doesn't care about anything in life.
Also... who really uses the Status feature on their WhatsApp anyway? And now it's turning into an Instagram story thing? I don't get this.
