Instagram back up after global outage sees users having a meltdown on Twitter
Many users turned to Twitter to post their angst.
Many users gave suggestions on what to do while the app was down, and some merely confirmed the bug using the hashtag 'instagramdown'.
The outage comes just days after over 50 million Facebook accounts were breached by hackers.
