    @himotheeproof Blocking QT on Instagram now 😉. You cannot imagine the foot people who DM me —and I am not talking about the people who want to hire me to fix theirs!

  • jakemelndez jakrates (@jakemelndez) reported

    I needed a full week break from Instagram. Starting over has never been a problem.

  • DaphneFerocious 🔥Daphne Ferocious🔥 (@DaphneFerocious) reported

    If I were an American were the Law actually works and she just canceled me and say: I need to listen to my doctor I would go straight to Federal Council of Medicine. And show there his INSTAGRAM. He wants status quo not heal her if she has a problem at her knees.

  • Solarchainsaw Leonard Paul (@Solarchainsaw) reported

    @HotepJesus Watch out for twitch and the likes .. the global brainfuckery is working overtime. Kids can't tell reality from fake and do anything for likes and viewers. Those InstaHoes are exploiting themselves Instagram is just the delivery service.

  • bohemiansunset_ aldy (@bohemiansunset_) reported

    instagram has changed so much. we see everything we didn't wish to see, exploration based on a broken algorithm, people started to make a living by doing unnatural things. its like an alternative world for those who enjoy false impressions to satisfy their possessions smh

  • thepropertysims The Property Sims (@thepropertysims) reported

    @joshdotcommm @hya_bm no problem! There are a few - if you just google it. Last time we used one (I forget the name) and it exported all instagram comments into excel format. And then we used a random number generator. But this AppSorteos took out all the extra steps!!

  • Hatsy_Aye Hayat Aye ➰ (@Hatsy_Aye) reported

    @candleladybrba @pottery734 @danphilp19 @shortyawards He posts ALL the time on his Instagram so it's sounding more and more like a personal problem

  • nullpunter John F (@nullpunter) reported

    @officialalyxx_ Ah, I thought you were generalizing to social media everywhere. No problem, then! I'm not on Instagram, so feel free to shred anyone over there!

  • bannedthing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Oat (@bannedthing) reported

    also my phones being ****** idk what's going on the only app working is instagram

  • alyssaparten Alyssa Parten (@alyssaparten) reported

    Me: *spends hours on canva working on making a pretty infograph with the right information and caption to tie it all together... gets 15 likes* Also me: *posts random professional photo with a cheesy quote/song/comment... gets hundred of likes* I hate Instagram. 😂

  • Harith_AKA Harith (@Harith_AKA) reported

    @instagram @ParkerKitHill I don’t want anything I just need my account back!!! Fix the damn process!!

  • DjOli_official 🤴DJ Oli OffiCial (@DjOli_official) reported

    @iosninja_io Plz fix Instagram ++

  • fallingforcv amanda (@fallingforcv) reported

    @8Ietters i agree with u, i was tryna say that like the only reason ppl think twitter stans are bad is because the insta cupcakes can’t look at the real world and see that they’re the problem when it comes to drama. look at where it started: instagram.

  • lgbtforbes semi hiatus🐰 #rike: WANGXIAN SOULMATES (@lgbtforbes) reported

    look at goddamn makeup culture look at YouTube and Instagram look at Pinterest look at magazines no will never ever be the fault of girls/women but bro the issues r THERE

  • DeadShotZac Zac J Gill (@DeadShotZac) reported

    @instagram how do I contact someone about support as the reports aren’t actually sorting the issue

  • Dlx3Ontan travRiché (@Dlx3Ontan) reported

    @realWrongAce @instagram Instagram has a particular issue with it having several of these child model and teen fetish accounts that continue to stay up because its report system that's supposed to deal with that kind of content is complete garbage.

  • vanillayves c (@vanillayves) reported

  • shonaboy3 anuj (@shonaboy3) reported from New Delhi, National Capital Territory of Delhi

    @DCP_CCC_Delhi no action taken on my issue. Wat is the use of cyber crime. @instagram still they guys active on social networking. They may spoil someone else too

  • carrzi83 Carrzi 🔜 #DHANA20 (@carrzi83) reported

    @TheNinjaWolf I stream for Mixer but I would stream on Twitch if Mixer went down. I've done this before when I was having issues. I've also streamed on Instagram Live. Just chatted and put on makeup. Whatever I have to do I'll do it

  • couqs lex (@couqs) reported

    I wanna post on Instagram but my issue is that I just.. don’t take pics...

  • thebigmilkman77 theromanticmilkman (@thebigmilkman77) reported

    @Boo_Nanners No problem! Nobody should ever have to go through this yet sadly when victims speak up nobody listens. I hope you're okay and that you know we all love and support you 💕💕 Also my friend is okay she deleted her Twitter and Instagram because of it but said it made things better.

  • lodka20 lodka (@lodka20) reported

  • RestHollywood Brandon Van Vliet (@RestHollywood) reported

    : that race-baiting fraud @ShaunKing has people working around the clock deleting comments on his instagram posts. Lol!

  • le_debut gigi (@le_debut) reported

    I’m gonna talk about tech boot camps while I make dinner tonight if anyone’s interested. Should be about 8/8:30. My Instagram is the same @ as here. Gotta start slow with this tech branding business (by slow i mean aggressively shoot my shot)

  • KimberlyAAlonso Alonso Possible (@KimberlyAAlonso) reported

    @EJGibney @slpng_giants @instagram No problem! It doesn’t show up when you search “doggy bag” or “doggie bag”, so still a very strange coding/tagging choice for this emoji and phrase in general

  • Latsume Lastsume (@Latsume) reported

    @back_earth Well they are recruiting people on their Instagram. I would like to talk to you but it seems my DMs are broken

  • ReyJoseSP10 Rey Gawwwd (@ReyJoseSP10) reported

  • schoedon92 sonam choedon (@schoedon92) reported

    @shwetapattnaik @Sidnaazian1 @RealVinduSingh M not defending any1 here but if some1 accepts the mistakes n try to fix it than it should be okay cuz I also saw same thing one in Instagram saying spitted n another in twitter saying sana was looking for tissue paper n if we love both sana n sid than we need to stop negativity.

  • dvsch derrick has started yet another project (@dvsch) reported

    @botanicalduncan @pieratt The latest issue of Idea has a ton of this, including a bunch of Instagram stories printed like manifestos. I haven’t picked up a design mag in a few years and it’s wild how much has changed in the discourse.

  • JeremyWorth Jeremy Worth (@JeremyWorth) reported

    @Iromg Clearly not - in fact the whole sequence of phots gives it away. Maybe the issue is more that it wasn’t released through the official Instagram account!

  • jesserubio33 jesse⚾️ (@jesserubio33) reported

    @instagram You’re app isn’t working help

  • eluzumi ~ Sup it's Meg ~ (@eluzumi) reported

    @instagram it is my private account, with photos of myself; It also does not let me put the "how I could try to recover my account" option, I had to try from another cell phone, then I tried to fill out the form that the disabling was a mistake but it gives me an error,...

  • eluzumi ~ Sup it's Meg ~ (@eluzumi) reported

    Good afternoon @instagram , I am here today because, I need help, i had a problem, my account has been disabled for reasons that I do not consider reasonable, cause it tells me that it was cause I was pretending being another person, which does not make sense...

  • needyjoey needyjoey (@needyjoey) reported

    i hate instagram so much. @instagram fix yourself and bring us all fanpages back!!

  • GonzoVeritas 🛡𝗚𝗼𝗻𝘇𝗼 𝗩𝗲𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗮𝘀🛡 (@GonzoVeritas) reported

    @thenextweb @bryanclark It may dethrone them with the very young, but Instagram will continue as Facebook did with the older demographic. TikTok's security issues may come back to bite them, as well. They've already been banned by the US Army.

  • homelobotomy michael (@homelobotomy) reported

    having studied abroad and working in finance does not make you a “citizen of the world” like your instagram bio might suggest

  • lhommielette l'hommelette (@lhommielette) reported

    The problem isn't that this dude cuts Moby ***** or A la Recherches in half or that he hypothetically uses gum wrap as book markers. I am just skeptical he would read at all if couldn't post his books in an Instagram account.

  • madelinedarland madeline (@madelinedarland) reported

    I wanna lose weight but I also wanna eat everything I see on the instagram explore page do you see my problem

  • ImSoWavyB718 🇩🇴 Devin the dude (@ImSoWavyB718) reported

    @AppleSupport This occurs on Instagram too. I have the latest version of iPhone I just bought this phone last Wednesday. It’s an issue with either the apps need to update their camera accordance to complement the enhancement of the pro max cameras because this is ridiculous

  • heiango animal crackers (@heiango) reported

  • TeosWorld Raw Jade (@TeosWorld) reported

    @instagram You people have a serious fake like farm and spam / scam / malware account problem. Time to stop outsourcing your security. Check your employees. There should be Zero spam / fake like accounts. Stop the insanity. #opsec

  • AeIine Aéline Lluvi 🌧️ (@AeIine) reported

    For some reason, my instagram account got deleted for violating the rules (it was totally empty) When i tried to create a new one it told me "there was a problem, try later" I reload the page, retry and now instagram doesn't want to accept my mail to create a new account 😤😡
