Yes, if you have a basic knowledge of programming you can build your app using the clone of already existing one, but… Honestly, it’s a very challenging task for so many reasons.

This estimate will look like this:
I added Web Frontend to our estimation so we won’t miss any users looking for us on The Web. Features will be the same as in our future app.
According to The Next Web cost estimation, the top social networks has a following price:
Twitter-like app: $50,000 to $250,000
Instagram clone: $100,000 to $300,000
WhatsApp: $125.000 to $150.000
Pinterest: around $120,000
Vine: $125,000 and $175,000
Snapchat: $75,000 – $150,000
According to our experience, we can tell you that a social media app delivery time takes about 3-6 months (1800-2500 hours) and the total price of such fully functional chatting app developed from a scratch can be estimated roughly between $75,000 – $280,000 (at 40$/hour).
Plus, you should keep in mind some extra money for post-launch tech support (improvements and upgrades) and promotion campaign.
