Nokia says @InstagramWP is not real

Nokia says @InstagramWP is not real
As we suspected all along, the @InstagramWP Twitter account was called a fake by none other than Nokia. Ironically, it was only because Nokia was following the site that many thought that it could have been genuine. The tweet sent out from the account read "Good things come to those that wait! :)" which was a message alluding to the long wait that Windows Phone owners have endured waiting for an official Instagram app.

According to Doug Dawson, Nokia's head of Media Relations, an auto-follow rule on Tweetsender led it to appear as though the Finnish company was following tweets from the @InstagramWP account, giving it a lot of credibility. But Nokia unfollowed the account not too long afterward.

On Wednesday, we told you right away that we felt that the tweet was not genuine for a number of reasons. Meanwhile, one of the better third party Instagram apps for Windows Phone, Itsdagram, might soon return to the Windows Phone Store after its developers quickly pulled it on Monday to work on some missing features. The app offered just about everything the real Instagram does except for the filters.
