Parts of the internet went into uproar on Saturday after Instagram experienced a worldwide outage.

Instagram confirmed the outage in a tweet and said they were working quickly to resolve the issue.

The outage only lasted a short while on and was resolved around 7:30am, but that was plenty of time for users to head to Twitter and share their frustrations.

#Instagramdown quickly became a trending topic as users complained about the app not working.

"If I refresh my Instagram one more time and it doesn't work, we're going to have a problem," one user wrote.

"Almost had a heart attack thinking my WiFi was out. Twitter saved me #instagramdown," another said.
