Instagram has suffered two outages so far this week. On Tuesday, the photo app was unusable for some who were unable to open it at all. The issue lasted for several hours, according to Downdetector

Then on Wednesday, Instagram went down again for a shorter period of time, with users citing the same issues of the app not opening or freezing after it does open. 

In June, there was a global Instagram outage for an hour.

Instagram didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
