Today, Instagram was down for a period. The cause is still unknown, although we hope it has nothing to do with Facebook’s recent hack.

The downtime occured worldwide and included the website, API calls and the platform itself. Downdetector registered over 15.000 down outrages from users all over the world:



Every downside (pun intended) has its upside, and as always, Twitter was there for the rescue.

Yes, we’ve been there.

Taking it a bit too far.

There’s Instagram-people, and Twitter-people.

At least we have a story for our children now.

Instagram has not yet given insights in what caused the outrage.
