Instagram users across the globe were spooked on Thursday when funky lines started appearing on their photos and videos.
Initially, some users thought it to be their phone glitch but the social network giant took to Twitter to clarify the fault. The tech giant has, however, not clarified how long it will take for the company to come up with a fix.
We're aware of an issue making bars appear over some photos. We know this is frustrating and are working to resolve it as quickly as possible.

Other users are also experiencing a glitch in a pop-up window that said “Action Blocked,” although it wasn’t immediately clear if the issues were related.
According to Downdetector.com, Instagram had been having issues since 1:16pm New York time.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions to the glitch fiasco:
