Facebook Inc's photo-sharing app Instagram faced a brief outage on Wednesday for users across several cities, including London, San Francisco and Singapore, reported Reuters.
"Couldn't load activity," read the screen when opening the app.
As life came to a brief pause for Instagrammars, the distraught users took to Twitter to complain and express their anger.
In no time, #instagramdown became the top trend in many countries and while some outraged, others flooded the microblogging site with memes and jokes speculating the reason behind app's outage.
