Earlier last night Instagram released a new major update for their famous app, and we can honestly say that people were not happy about it. As a result, Instagram quickly took the update back and stated that it was only a bug.
Due to a bug, some users saw a change to the way their feed appears today. We quickly fixed the issue and feed is back to normal. We apologize for any confusion.

The update required the users to tap the photo and post or simply swipe sideways to get to the next post, completely different from the old update of scrolling up and down that Instagram has been using since its release back in 2010.
All I’m saying is if Instagram can undo an update that quickly after they realised people weren’t happy about it, I know for damn sure they can give me a chronological TL by the end of the day

Saying it's a "bug" instead of owning up to a lame update. We see you pic.twitter.com/OvJJ0xe20x

What a very clever bug it was too, with its ability to explain exactly how it had broken things… pic.twitter.com/4Rdbs27WjT

Instagram took the update back, yet, people still can’t get over the whole “bug” situation. “If you’re still seeing it, simply restart the app, Sorry for the confusion! Always trying new ideas, usually with a much smaller number of people.” Said the head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri.
We guess “it was a bug” is gonna be our new excuse for EVERYTHING.
