Instagram Is Down (Update: It’s Back!)

RED ALERT! We are at DEFCON 1.

Instagram is down.

According to and Twitter, and my iPhone, the service is down for everyone.

According to this service status site, Instagram has been down for about an hour. Twitter is full of hilarious jokes about Coachella.

Instagram has not made a comment on the matter yet, but we’ve reached out and will update as soon as humanly possible.

Update — 10:16 a.m: Instagram says they’re aware of the issue and are working on it, but it’s still down.

Update – 11:20 a.m.: Instagram hasn’t confirmed that everything is back up yet, but things seem to be coming back online slowly.

Update: 12:00 p.m.: 3 hours later, Instagram seems to be almost entirely back online. Let the narcissism commence!
