It was a big day for Boris Johnson yesterday, not only did he deliver a big speech - he also ed Snapchat.
He follows in the footsteps of Labour party leader Jeremy Corbynwho became the first major British politician to the messaging app back in One of the PM's first posts starts with the slogan "Let's get Brexit done" - a line he repeated in his speech to party conference. He also mentions pledges to increase the of police officers, and improve schools and the NHS. There's even a Boris bitmoji, which some might say looks a tad less scruffy than the real life version.
We know the PM is new to Snapchat and when you first start using it you might not know how everything works. Here's a guide on snapchat ts to avoid making some rookie mistakes.
We've all been there - you take a picture where you're "feeling cute" and decide to send it to a mate. You start scrolling down the list to J, to maybe send it to Jacob Rees-Mogg but accidentally pick the other J on the list - Jeremy Corbyn. On other apps you might be able to delete it, but not on Snapchat - once it's gone you can't get it back - so double check before you send anything.
As leader of the country you might not always want snap maps turned on. If you're enjoying some downtime with your new puppy for example. Or if you fancy a quick drink after work in Westminster but want to avoid one of the 21 Snapchat ts you've recently sacked. On the other hand, maps could actually help you out and tell you where they are.
Imagine bumping into Philip Hammond or Ken Clarke down the pub. Running the country is a busy job but if you find yourself hanging around between speeches then have some fun with Snapchat's filters. What's not to like about seeing yourself as a dancing bunny, a pilot or just sporting a snazzy new pair of specs.
You can also do it with a friend or colleague so the next time you and the Brexit Secretary, Stephen Barclay, are on the train to Brussels why not give it a whirl? As PM it's good to see what your opponents might be snapchat ts to - maybe you want to see what the leader of a rival party is posting. You might be tempted to take a screen shot of a post that gets a lots of views and send it to your team, but it could get awkward.
The app will notify the person with a message saying "Boris Johnson has taken a screen shot". If you put members of your cabinet on a separate list it means you can then send them posts privately. Just in case you get the urge to share a pic of you doing a selfie with a portrait of Winston Churchill, or videos from the Christmas party of the team throwing shapes to Abba's Dancing Queen.
Just remember it's really easy to get your private and public stories mixed up and end up sharing something like the above with everyone. After a few days, I'm sure you'll get into the swing of things and be glued to your Snapchat. Listen to Newsbeat live at and weekdays - or listen back here. Johnson dominates Tory social media race. Burger King milkshake tweet ruled irresponsible. Do politicians get social media? Check before you send.
Switch maps off. Try out all the filters. Screenshot with care. Don't mix up private and public stories.
