Instagram users around the world went into panic mode Friday when the popular platform abruptly crapped out.
The problem reportedly began at around 2:45 p.m. ET and wasn’t fixed until about 45 minutes later. Though it wasn’t a lengthy outage, it was enough time to cause uproar among the most dramatic corners of the internet. And where did these people turn to vent their frustrations and ease their worries? Twitter, of course.
According to DownloadDetector, more than 40,000 people reported Instagram outages Friday afternoon in countries like the U.S. the U.K., Italy, and Brazil. Though the company has not revealed how many people were impacted by the shutdown, a spokesperson has since confirmed it was result of some kind of glitch. Duh.
