Some Instagram users are angry about a bug that has disabled their Instagram accounts around the past 24 hours. Many people have used Twitter to complain about this problem, but Instagram didn’t mention the reason for this problem. they just tweeted that they are aware of it and trying to fix it.
“Remain calm, everyone,” the tech blog advised:
“From what we can tell, there isn’t an apparent similarity between these accounts to make them targets. One user told The Verge that her Instagram was solely dedicated to her chocolate business, while another said she used it for personal posts. Another user, who owned at least ten accounts, said some were related to businesses. One user says she had used a third-party app to post content a long time ago while another said she never had.”
Instagram tweeted about the issue last night, so at least we know they are aware of the issue. They tweeted: “We’re aware of a bug that’s causing some users to be logged out of their accounts. We’re working to resolve this as quickly as possible.’’
Many people have used Twitter to show their frustration. Benjamin Fearnow tweeted: ‘Holy s**t this is worse than the election!’
Adore Chloe tweeted ‘Give us back our pages’ with a GIF of cartoon character Spongebob Squarepants crying!
Another Twitter user (Sierra) twitted: ‘I need my account back. I did nothing wrong. Please fix this’ with a GIF of Kermit, the Frog!
It appears that Instagram is more than just a photosharing app for us, based on these reactions I guess Instagram is out of friend zone right now!
