Instagram Goes Down - And Memes, Jokes Flood Twitter

Instagram went down this morning with thousands of social media users unable to log in to the photo-sharing website.

Users worldwide reported problems with the Facebook-owned platform early on Wednesday in an outage which lasted for around an hour.

Attempts to log in on a desktop browser produced a blank page with the message: '5xx Server Error', while on the mobile app users were told that their feed could not be refreshed

Tweets posted by frustrated users suggested the Instagram outage stretched across the globe with the app not working in London, San Francisco or Singapore.
The website DownDetector said the problems had begun at 8.16am British time, which was 3.16am in New York and 5.16pm in Sydney. 

People commenting on the website's updates also reported problems in California, Indonesia, India and Romania. 

In Australia, some users apparently went as far as to contact emergency services, with Queensland Police saying: 'Instagram being down is not a police matter'.
