Instagram was once the most loved iPhone app of the indie scene. However, in a short amount of time, Instagram released a version for Android (bad), was bought by Facebook for $1 billion dollars (a disaster) and became the #1 app in the App store (salt rubbed into wounds). Now folks have “insta-ntly” turned on the photo app. Here are 10 tweets making fun of Instagram:
Mark Zuckerberg bought instagram for $1,000,000,000? – Idiot! He could have downloaded it for free, from the appstore.

If you're not posting pictures of pie on Instagram at midnight, you really need to think about the direction of your life.

Oh, you took a cool picture with the Instagram app? You must be such a highly skilled photographer.

Gingerbread Man won’t shut up about Instagram. He’s more annoying than ever.
Apparently Instagram takes your phone's dark and crappy photos and makes them look like they are dark and crappy on purpose. Genius.

I meant to photograph you all horrible looking like that!
All this talk about Instagram and not one mention of how I just bought Geocities for a chicken wing.

Maybe Facebook will buy all 10,000 of his X-Files fan sites for $35?
An Old Saying

The Reds are spending $300 million on Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips. For $700 million more they could have had Instagram.

The Reds actually drafted Joey for his secret social media app project… story developing…
I could Instagram the food I eat but we've all seen what gas station hot dogs and boxes of Mike and Ikes look like.
— Steven Amiri (@StevenAmiri) April 11, 2012
We already know they look delicious.
The Next Instagram
Just a hunch, but I think the next Instagram is going to be an app that tells me if quinoa is kosher for Passover.

It’s very likely.
