Bug kicks users off Instagram on Wednesday

Bug kicks users off Instagram on Wednesday
Where you one of those Instagram users who were kicked off the app without signing out on Wednesday? If so, we know the reason why this happened, thanks to a tweet from the company. It was a bug that forced an unknown number of Instagram users to curse in disgust and suffer through social-media withdrawal.

Some Instagram users worried that hackers had taken control of their account, especially when they couldn't log back in with their password. The tweet from Instagram states that "You will be able to log in as normal, though it might take longer than usual." Additionally, Instagram said that since the issue was from a bug, it did not have to change passwords like Amazon did recently when it was hacked during a Black Friday sale.


If you can't get by without posting an Instagram picture of your meals, be thankful that with the site back up, you can now eat dinner.
