The worst thing that could ever happen, happened. Instagram and Facebook were down for over eight hours. Yeah, the internet went through a dark time today.
But, at least we were all in this together. Both the websites were down for everyone across the globe and not one particular area was being personally victimized.
What do you do when two of the biggest social media websites are down? Turn to a third social media website, of course. Who wants to go and experience the world like people did before internet and social media?
Twitter became everyone's knight in shining armour and everyone flocked to the site to complain about the other two sites. But, since it's Twitter, the complains soon turned into jokes and memes because that's just what you do on Twitter, okay.
#Instagramdown and #Facebookdown started trending soon, right on track.March 14, 2019
It was a good time to take shots at the website.
I can't even tell if instagram is down because the pic at the top of my feed is from two days ago which seems about right based off their terrible feed algorithm.— Korey Kuhl (@koreykuhl) March 13, 2019

Twitter people are superior.
All these poor folks flocking over from Instagram. Finally seeing where the memes get made. It's like learning what hotdogs are. Hurts doesn't it?— ditch pony (@molly7anne) March 13, 2019
So many personal problems.
Yo @instagram I just went public with my girlfriend last night and I have to post a few more pictures of us to be annoying/show her off. Can you fix yourself soon?— Colton Underwood (@colton) March 13, 2019
Their careers are over now.March 14, 2019
At least that was still working.
With Instagram being down I've had no choice but to check my LinkedIn out of pure boredom— Kirsten King (@KirstenKing_) March 13, 2019
That video is horrifying.March 14, 2019
Instagram is down?! How am I supposed to compare myself to others and go down a spiral of stalking people who appear happier than me? Ugh. Inconvenient.— Lilly Singh (@IISuperwomanII) March 13, 2019
Send thoughts and prayers.
What if Instagram never gets fixed?? So many models will lose their livelihood, careers instantly destroyed. Instagram model unemployment skyrockets, and girls who post about Fit Tea will be lined up outside of soup kitchens. THIS IS SO SCARY, PRAY FOR THESE WOMEN. #instagramdown— The Fat Jewish (@FATJEW) March 13, 2019
Every influencer who posted before the breakdown:
Wow did I break Instagram
