THIS WAS END TIMES, PEOPLE. END TIMES.
Sometimes, someone posts an Instagram story where you just NEED to screenshot it and text it to your friend. This is human nature, people!
What was worst about this test was that no one knew who had the feature and who didn’t — all we knew was that Instagram was testing it with a small group of people. This meant that you had to live with the risk of getting narc’d on by Instagram the next time you screenshot someone’s story. It was a lurker’s nightmare!
