Vague Snapchat tweet gets Windows Phone hopes up, but try not to get too excited

One which Windows Phone/Snapchat fans would immediately jump in the air at reading, because it seems to suggest that support may finally, one day, actually be planned. HUZZAH! Right?

For fear of getting disappointed again, we should try and curb the excitement. Because none of this is in any way a 'confirmation' that Snapchat 'gave in' or anything.

Here's the tweet:

"@raphaeu There are plans to make it available in the future, we'll give deets when that's close. Hope this helps! :)"

The "it" being Snapchat for Windows Phone. But considering the company's seeming lack of interest, even complete disregard, of Windows Phone as a platform, it's tough to see what may finally have changed their minds. The new Android/iOS app porting tools? Microsoft throwing a ton of cash their way? The CEO finally woke up one morning and realized the error of his ways?

So, maybe there is hope. But try not to get too excited just yet. Remember who this is that we're dealing with.
