Jordanians find hilarity in Snapchat's choice to feature Irbid.

Snapchat chose to feature Irbid, Jordan, the second-largest governorate in the country, on Wednesday and it had some mixed reviews.

And after major cities like Cairo , Dubai and Tel Aviv, the main question on people's minds is why the tech giant chose to go with #Irbid_live over the capital of Amman. Here's how most people reacted.

So they lined up irbid between Dubai live and Doha live. Irbid never stood a chance.

Other Jordanians, mostly from Irbid, were glad to get the exposure.

Less than 15 miles from the Syrian border, Irbid has become a hub for university education with a growing Syrian population. The place may be most well-known for University Street, which is cited as having once broken the world record for most Internet cafes on a street.

The problem with featuring lesser-known cities? The natives might have some specific demands.

If khan Zaid and Shawermaji don't make it to #irbid_live at least twice it wouldn't be irbid.
