The World Is Ending: Instagram Is Down

Nice Move


I never thought this day would come. No one did. After years of logging into Instagram to rake in likes, confidence boosts, and the rush of knowing that your life is better than your ex-boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend’s best friend’s roommate, something happened. It happened.

Instagram is down.

After trying to log on to see if I had somehow gained a million followers in the three minutes since I last checked, I realized I was logged out. Weird since I have no idea the last time I physically typed my password in. Still, I tried to enter my account. Nothing. Heart-racing I thought “someone hacked me.” This is it. The end. My life was over. As the blood was bounding in my ears, I searched “Instagram down” in Google. It turns out that it wasn’t just me. Tons of people were having problems.

As I checked Instagram’s Twitter (because I’m pathetic) I saw the message that confirmed the truth: life, as we knew it, was over.

Cue: explosions all over social media.

We miss you Instagram. Please come back. Please?

UPDATE: As of 1:36 p.m. CST Instagram was back. For me, at least. And honestly, that’s all I care about. As for the rest of you, may the odds be ever in your favor.
