A weird glitch has hit Facebook-owned popular photo-sharing app Instagram. But in a surprising move, Instagrammers are not angry about it. On Thursday, users started to notice some random bars appearing on photos. Some users felt that it was a form of an artistic expression. But Instagram later clarified that it was indeed just a glitch. Here is what Instagram had to say:
“We're aware of an issue making bars appear over some photos. We know this is frustrating and are working to resolve it as quickly as possible.”
While there were a few tweets venting their frustration over the glitch, most of the users took it sportively and joked about it. One Twitter user asked if the Instagram glitch can be kept forever! Many users treated the glitch like a new filter as it ended up giving their posts a somewhat kitschy look.
According to tweets by users, this glitch was not limited to stories but it also made bars appear on Instagram posts. Instagram has not confirmed yet whether the glitch has been fixed.
Before you think it was the only Instagram glitch of the day, some users also faced pop-ups while watching stories. "Action Blocked. This action was blocked. Please try again later. We restrict certain content and actions to protect our community. Tell us if you think we made a mistake."
