Instagram Suffers Outage, #ThrowbackThursday Interrupted
It’s not just you. Instagram went offline this afternoon. Users couldn’t post — alas on #ThrowbackThursday — to the photo sharing app. It’s mobile app feeds weren’t refreshing and the desktop site was flashing an error message.
Instagram took to Twitter to tell users it’s working on the problem:
Instagram is experiencing some technical issues. We’re aware and working on a fix.

Postscript (Aug. 28, 5:45 p.m. Eastern): After nearly two hours of downtime, Instagram appears to be back online. Oddly, the company deleted its tweet about the outage; and hasn’t updated its Twitter followers.
