“Instagram is down. Just describe your lunch to me”

Many people take pictures of what they’re eating and post it on Instagram. “Instagram is down. Just describe your lunch to me” is a jocular Instagram saying that has been printed on many images. “Instagram is down - so just describe your lunch to me” was posted on Twitter on June 30, 2012.


Wikipedia: Instagram
Instagram is a mobile, desktop, and Internet-based photo-sharing application and service that allows users to share pictures and videos either publicly or privately. It was created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, and launched in October 2010 as a free mobile app exclusively for the iOS operating system. A version for Android devices was released two years later, in April 2012, followed by a feature-limited website interface in November 2012, and apps for Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 in April 2016 and October 2016 respectively.
