INSTAGRAM briefly went under again on Tuesday morning.
Users of the popular photo-sharing app began complaining about a mysterious outage around 11:10am UK time.
A surge in requests from confused Instagram lovers has been spotted by Down Detector.
It’s not clear how widespread the problem was, but several people flocked to Twitter to find out if it was an isolated case.
“Is @instagram down again or is it just me having a problem?” one confused user tweeted.
“#instagramdown again????” added another.
“Anyone having a problem with Instagram,” wrote a third frustrated user.
“Why is Instagram literally down every week, who runs it?”
The last time Instagram experienced an outage wasn’t that long ago, at the end of October.
This issue caused people to be incorrectly notified that their account was suspended.
It doesn’t look like today’s issue was too widespread, more like a brief glitch in the service.
Tests by The Sun at the time showed that Instagram worked perfectly.
It’s also worth noting that #Instagramdown is usually trending on Twitter when the outage affects everyone.
Luckily that wasn’t the case today.
