The Trade Desk (NASDAQ:TTD) stock isn’t doing so hot on Tuesday but it’s not due to any news from the tech company. Instead, investors can look to Snap (NYSE:SNAP) as the source of news dragging down TTD stock, as well as other internet company shares today.

So what exactly did Snap do to spook internet stocks? The social media company announced that it won’t reach its internal guidance for revenue or profit. It’s worth noting this comes just one month after the company reported quarterly user growth in April above estimates.

The warning from Snap is affecting internet stocks, such as social media companies, as well as those involved in advertising. But it’s not entirely SNAP’s fault that TTD and other stocks are taking a beating today.

Investors can look to more macro elements in the market to blame for today’s drop. Among them are the increasing interest rates and inflation in the U.S. This is affecting consumer spending, which hurts ad revenue, reports Bloomberg.
