Mark Zuckerberg Uses Jelly To Ask About A Spider In His Shower

By: Chris Crum - January 13, 2014

Apparently Mark Zuckerberg is using Jelly, the new social Q&A app from Twitter co-founder Biz Stone. He used it over the weekend to take a picture of a spider in his bathroom, and ask:

“What kind of spider is this, and is it okay to let it keep living in my shower?”

Kevin Thau, Jelly’s COO (formerly VP of Business Development at Twitter), responded to Zuck’s question, “I think it’s a Phidippus johnsoni. Probably want to relocate it out of the house,” linking to a Wikipedia article about the spider.

Stone tweeted about this particular use of Jelly:


Jelly has only been out for a week, and already we’ve seen two Mark Zuckerberg-related storylines. The first time was when a user took to Jelly to show what looked to be a picture of him texting and driving.

    I answered also, and Zuck sent a thank you. A good number of answers seem to have wikipedia links in them.

    What kind of retard asks if it’s okay to let his home become a pest hive? Seriously?

      The kind of “retard” that doesn’t want to pointlessly kill a spider and this reply is coming from Australia where a spider in your bathroom can be very serious indeed!!

        Why use an app developed by co-founder of Twitter to fire off a pic of some spider in the shower, is the bigger question…think that is the point of the mention in the first place…the web is the story, not the spider.
