While most people went about their days and waited for the app to come back up, some Instagram stans took to Twitter to absolutely lose their minds.
So many people are having this same issue on @instagram yet Instagram don’t seem to be saying anything about it. Basically we’re all just using the app less now and coming to twitter who else is having this annoying issue? #instagramdown pic.twitter.com/CgO0uHpRYd— Aubrey Whitfield (@aubreysongs) June 9, 2019
