GATESVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Among the dirt, gravel and stones dredged from the bottom of Salt Creek, an unmistakable sparkle shone through. A tiny flake of gold, no bigger than a speck, had risen to the top of the worthless rock. Prospectors swirled the collection of stones and water in their pans, trying to get a better look.

According to the statistics, Snapchat has 18.9 of the market share. Twitter has 26.7 percent. It seems every teenager with a smartphone has at least heard about it. Many of them have downloaded it.
