Instagram had a major outage on the 22nd. Both influencers and businesses worldwide were unable to log in or access the app for about two hours starting around 11:45am PT. And like many who have unreliable/slow status pages for their cloud dependencies, many Instagram users went to Twitter for information about the outage.
