As it happens with Facebook when it is down, users flock on Twitter to complain about the problem, or even add a humorous aspect on the issue. This time was no different, with many Instagram users anxiously tweeting about the problem that lasted more than 2 hours.
Instagram tweeted in around an hour after the problem started that:
We’re working to fix a feed delivery issue. Thank you for your patience. — Instagram (@instagram)
Although this tweet could be reassuring for some users, it wasn’t enough for those that are addicted to the popular photo-sharing app and felt that they weren’t able to express themselves during these 2 hours.
It was a matter of time until the hashtag #instagramnotworking turned trending on Twitter and we must admit that it had many interesting tweets.
Here’s a sample of them:
The question is not “Why is Instagram not working?”, but “Why does the world need another picture of you?” #instagramnotworking
