Following the introduction of his signature gaming handheld and home console, Soulja Boy took to Twitter to promote another product once again, taking advantage of the recent Facebook and Instagram outages.

The Soulja Boy Official app is the rapper’s own social media platform, which showcases a Soulja Chat feature that allows users to connect with each other like a public chatroom. “Wtf is wrong with Instagram sh*t not working oh well time to make my own app,” the rapper tweeted before sharing his app, noting, “Facebook???? Instagram???? At least the Soulja App isn’t down.”

Although the app has been around for some time now, it’s seeing a high increase in traffic thanks to Soulja’s critical self-promotion timing and utilization of his Breakfast Club quote.
