See below for the ten best tweets while Instagram was down.

    These tweets are hilarious! Thank you, this post made my day [:

    The day really did feel a bit strange – you didn’t have to create insta-worthy scenes and just live through it. Very old school 😛

    At least Twitter was still up.

    I’m so glad I don’t live my life on social media,
