Matthew Perry has joined the photo-sharing platform Instagram on Thursday much to the surprise of his fans all over the world. The last from the Friends gang to join this social media, Matthew Perry had his fans wait with bated breath after his cryptic tweet on twitter earlier on Wednesday hinting at "Big news coming...". The platform naturally suffered a technical glitch as soon as everyone's most beloved Friends icon Chandler Bing joined it as about 26500 fans of the actor followed him within 5 minutes of his debut.

Friends co-star Lisa Kudrow announced the big news through her Instagram account with a caption that read, "Finally!!! Yay!! Can’t believe my eyes MY EYES Welcome to Instagram @mattyperry4 #friendsforlife". She also shared a throwback photograph of herself with Perry. Fans of the iconic TV show certainly have gone into a frenzy over this announcement and can totally reciprocate with Phoebe saying, "my eyes MY EYES!!"

The TV show FRIENDS is considered one of the most iconic TV shows ever made. The show recently celebrated its 25th anniversary and fans could not help but ask for a reunion special with their five favourite friends namely Chandler Bing, Rachel Green, Monica Geller, Ross Geller, Phoebe Buffay, and Joey Tribbianni. On Wednesday, the FRIENDS fandom went into a frenzy when Chandler Bing a.k.a. Matthew Perry took to Twitter and wrote, “Big news coming…”. This little tweet led the show’s fans to speculate about a possible reunion of the five friends or a spinoff.
