Here is what Instagram claimed in its announcement that the problem has been resolved.
Following the significant global outage that affected WhatsApp a few days ago, Instagram has also just experienced one. The social networking app apparently had its second outage, but this one was particularly worrying because it was followed by some users’ accounts seeming to be suspended. Well, Meta has addressed and resolved the problem. However, for those who are unaware, here is what truly occurred and how Instagram users responded to the event on Twitter.
