Instagram is DOWN: App and website stop working worldwide sparking a hilarious Twitter meltdown

Instagram is down for disgruntled users across the world who say they have been unable to load the app and site.

The problem largely appears to be in Europe and parts of Asia, with some isolated incidents across the US.

Many users have taken to Twitter to vent their frustration, with some complaining the problem has persisted for several hours.

It is the second time the app has crashed in a month. The cause is still unknown, although server issues are most likely responsible for the outage.

The hashtag #instagramdown took over social media as users struggled to cope without their favourite picture-sharing social media platform

According to the website DownDetector, which has received thousands of reports about the issue, 39 per cent of problems are related to the news feed and 35 per cent relate to problems logging in.

Twenty five per cent of disgruntled users are having problems with the website.

Reports started coming in at 9.13pm EDT (2.13am BST) with the most reports received around three hours later.

Some users have resorted to deleting the app and reinstalling it, which worked for a short time but then the app crashed again.

Others posted on Twitter saying that resetting the cache sorts out the problem.

'Solved @instagram issue. Settings. Apps. Instagram. Clear cache and data and then force stop', wrote Glenn Gilbertti.

'Instagram, I missed you! If your Instagram isn't working (android users), clear the Instagram data and cache under your app settings', wrote Elise D.

A favourite of procrastinators, the image-focused app can often curb productivity. With it not working, some users pondered if they should use their time in a more useful way

'When Instagram is down and you have to choose between Facebook and Twitter', wrote user Ian Herrington with a GIF of a child choosing between biscuits

Instagram has pushed-out an update to the Google Play Store this morning and some people are saying on Twitter and Reddit that updating fixed their problems.

'I just got an update for my Instagram and it seems to be working perfectly fine now after the update', wrote Twitter user Jennifer.

'Hopefully it lasts? For anyone possibly still having issues try updating your Instagram or uninstalling it and reinstalling it again.'

Most problems have been reported in Europe, the US and Japan, according to reports, although they don't appear to be affecting all users

'I just got an update for my Instagram and it seems to be working perfectly fine now after the update', wrote Twitter user Jennifer

'Instagram on android has sent an update - update your app. Instagram will be functional!' wrote another Twitter user Rahul Sudeep.

While reports are widespread, the issues do not seem to affect all users of the Facebook-owned platform.

'Dammit Instagram, I use you for flirting purposes! You are not supposed to go down for hours like this! *Shakes fist at interwebz*', joked user And the Crash on Twitter.

One Twitter user compared the crashing of Instagram to the ending of Avengers: Infinity War and posted an image of the logo disintegrating

Cities across Europe reported that Instagram crashed. People had difficulty getting on to the Facebook-owned app in Rome, Barcelona and Paris, among other places

One Twitter user, Pilu JP sahoo, compared the crashing of Instagram to the ending of Avengers: Infinity War and posted an image of the logo disintegrating.

'Instagram: I don't feel so good right now....' he wrote.

'Instagram is down, just describe your lunch to me', Twitter user Bakuratv joked as part of a meme mocking people who post pictures of food on the site.

'Instagram is still down. I could try being more productive', Tweeted a user called 'You know we could all be reading a book right now'.

Confusion reigned as Instagram users struggled to know what to do with themselves without their social media fix. 'Instagram down', wrote user Yana

#InstagramDown and #InstagramFail were used alongside GIFs by people trying to express their displeasure at Instagram going down

Some Twitter users took the opportunity to poke fun at the Instagram users' penchant for sharing their meals. 'Instagram is down, just describe your lunch to me', Twitter user Bakuratv posted

'When Instagram is down and you have to choose between Facebook and Twitter', wrote user Ian Herrington with a GIF of a child choosing between biscuits.

'I'm from India and here in my area everyone's Instagram has stopped working', wrote user Ekta on the Down Detector website.

'Cannot open the app', wrote another user Camilia Smith.

MailOnline has contacted Instagram for comment.

iPhone users took the opportunity to look a little smug as Android users struggled to access the site across the world

Apple users took the opportunity to poke fun at Android fans. Some users have resorted to deleting the app and reinstalling it, which worked for a short time but then the app crashed again

Some Twitter users reported that an update would resolve the issue. Instagram has pushed-out an update to the Google Play Store this morning and some people are saying on Twitter and Reddit that updating fixed their problems

Last month Instagram also went down for users across the globe.

Areas hit hardest included eastern parts of the UK, United States, mainland Europe and south-eastern regions of Australia.

The outage caused a hilarious meltdown on Twitter, with one user joking the error gave them a 'heart attack'.

Last month Instagram users took to Twitter to vent their frustrations at another outage, which began around 1:00pm BST (8:00am ET)

Some users experiencing issues found they could view people's profiles by heading to the Instagram website.

While this is a limited version of the service, users could still see their news feed or like and comment on posts.

Following the outage, an Instagram spokesperson told MailOnline: 'We're aware that some users temporarily had trouble accessing Instagram earlier today.

'We quickly fixed the issue and affected users are now able to access their accounts.'

Last month, Instagram users shut out of the service posted a string of hilarious repsponses to the outage. While reports are widespread, they don't seem to be affecting all users of the Facebook-owned platform

More than 1,200 disgruntled users logged issues with the website Downdetector last month, which tracks website and app outages. Reports of outages came in from El Salvador, Sydney, Melbourne and New York among other places

Users who frequent Twitter more than Instagram shared their almost nonchalant expressions towards the loss of Facebook-owned app

ARE YOU ONE OF THE NEARLY 50% OF SMARTPHONE USERS ADDICTED TO THEIR HANDSET?

Worrying research published in December 2017 revealed we reach for our smartphones around 4,000 times a year for no apparent reason.

Each day we unlock our phone 28 times - and over a third of the time this is compulsive and unnecessary.

The apps we crave most are Facebook, followed by WhatsApp, Gmail and Instagram, the survey found.

Experts from Malta-based online casino Casumo.com looked at 2,000 UK smartphone users in order to find out whether checking their device was out of habit or necessity.

The average American clicks, taps or swipes on their smartphone screen more than 2,600 times a day, with some reaching an astonishing 5,400 times

They found more than 40 percent of the 10,000 times users check smartphones each year is 'compulsive'.

The top ten percent of users check their phones more than 60 times a day.

More than one in three people think they are addicted to checking their phone with the average user spending nearly an hour each day on their phone.

The survey also found Google Maps is considered the most useful app while WhatsApp and Gmail come second and third.

Google Chrome is fourth and Facebook comes in fifth.
