Everyone hates the new Instagram update
The scrollers of the world are outraged.
Instagram surprised their billion active users two days ago by rolling out an update that brings a major change to the interface.
The comfortable, familiar activity of scrolling through your feed with an upward flick of your thumb has been killed off.
Users must now tap the screen to browse new posts or swipe left to flip through posts with multiple images.
THE NEW INSTAGRAM UPDATE IS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! @INSTAGRAM WHAT WERE YOU THINKING, OH MY GOSH! By far the worst update in Instagram history! #instagram #instagramupdate #insta pic.twitter.com/KMuFDXRkQv

Instagrammers took to Twitter, the platform embraced by complainers, to express their outrage.

Welp. If Instagram was trying to find a way to make me stop using it, they figured it out. Nope nope and nope. It’s not intuitive, and looks messy. #InstagramUpdate
