“Instagram is Twitter for people who can’t read”

"Instagram is Twitter for people who can’t read” is a saying that has been printed on many images. “Instagram is twitter for people who can’t read” was posted on Twitter on February 1, 2012.

“Twitter is stupid, and Instagram is Twitter for people who can’t read” is a saying from the New York City-themed television sitcom 2 Broke Girls, on the episode “And the Pearl Necklace” that aired on October 1, 2012.  The saying was posted on Twitter on September 27, 2012, probably from a commercial advertising the episode.

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.

And the Pearl Necklace [2.02]
Caroline: Max, have you seen my phone? I wanna take a picture of this bad tip and put it on Instagram. Getting loose change used to be so depressing, but now I can share it with strangers.
Max: Let me sum it up: Twitter is stupid, and Instagram is Twitter for people who can’t read.
