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.
lmao IRBID snapchat story out of all the cities in Jordan?!?!?! this is too funny to me

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.
