    In his lawsuit, Pompliano claims to have uncovered evidence that the tools used by Snapchat were leading to the company claiming higher-than-actual numbers for metrics such as daily active users, month-over-month user growth and user retention.

    During his three-week stint at the company, he discovered "a wide-spread, systemic failure in Snapchat's internal controls over its user data".

    It was during the September 11, 2015 presentation when Spiegal allegedly made the comments that have so irked Indians on Twitter.

    In the presentation Pompliano says he then brought up Snapchat's poor showing in Spain and India, both countries with high mobile penetration.
