Instagram posted:

Instagram was down for many users globally today. In India this issue started to occur at around 6.00 am today, that is 29 January. Even according to DownDetector, a website which monitors outages, between 6.00 am and 7.00 am today, there have been over 32,000 incidents of people reporting issues with Instagram.

Apparently, Instagram is aware of what has caused this issue. But the Instagram users are not, and as is custom, this outage is now turning into an outrage on Twitter, with a flood of "am I the only one" tweets.

We will update this space as soon as there is any development to the issue.
