    @zeitzaytoon Thats why I deleted instagram.....gpt so sick of that. Lack of diversity is also an issue, and no body positive images either.

    @michesf @instagram This has been a huge problem for me lately on all the platforms.

    Axial Tilt: The Reason For The Season (@JinDenver) reported

    People who complain about being broke but post instagram shots from the bar all weekend every weekend are my favorite. Pro-Tip: if you whine about being broke and ALSO start every Monday with “ugh this weekend was way too much” then your problem is you.

    @MoffWilhuff @IGN She does have a funky nose I've always noticed it. Idk but I think ign was desperate when they put her on the fix. At first I didn't mind her but if you look at he Instagram and twitter she's full of her self she's annoying.

    I had never seen “Instagram makeup” in person, only on Instagram, until this past week. Working a night shift I see plenty of it now and holy fuck, it’s even worse in real life.

    What do people like Instagram storying more? A) Them working out, but not really working out because they are on IG instead. Or- B) Cutting open their eggs benedict during weekend brunch.

    Nate Meeds (@natemeeds) reported

    I’m going to start sharing more photos on twitter, typically I just stick to Instagram. I don’t know about you but I think I might need my news, comedy and sports broken up by art. I need a tone shift because I feel like the current note isn’t sustainable. So, I’ve got pictures.

    @Rez_GS Between going back to school for my masters and working, I doubt I'll have time for anything. Maybe twitch in the summer. I'll keep up with my Instagram too. But I think I'm done with youtube/twitter for the most part

  • chelsyyyx3
    Chelsy Bognot (@chelsyyyx3) reported

    Instagram will forever give women an unrealistic expectation of what they should look like. I thought I was pretty secure with my body and then these women are here with their tiny waist and juicy bubble butts. After working in the cosmetic surgery world, 95% of it is FAKE.

    Rob (@ThatAngryRobGuy) reported

    I closed down my Facebook account earlier this year and I've never had a Snapchat or really know what it is to be honest, so I won't have any problem closing down my Twitter and Instagram accounts if they start charging due to the #NetNeutrality vote. #JustBeingHonest

    @LiveLawIndia I believe obscenity is defined in law, whether putting photo on Instagram constitute obscenity that should be the question if someone prefer appeal against this order. Its the relevant issue of the present society, specially when we see everything awkward presented on TV.
