However, the man refused to sell the URL. State Snaps touts itself as "the authority on partying, college life and having fun," according to its Instagram .
The company created the phrase "do it for state" to brand its stunty, crude, and sexual videos and posts. The owner's alma mater has publicly stood against the objective of the company and its social media content. In fact, Adams' insistence on "continuing to operate his social media sites despite the objections of Iowa State University administrators and the policies of the social media platforms" was used as evidence against him at trial.
