Earlier this week, Instagram launched a new question-and-answer feature.
Some people learned the hard way that it is not, in fact, anonymous.
The tweets about the realization are priceless.
Earlier this week, Instagram launched a new question-and-answer feature. The feature, which sounds harmless enough, allows Instagram users to ask the people they follow any questions they want. Seriously! Anything at all!
The one catch? It’s, uh, not anonymous. And that all sounds fair enough. But some users learned a little too late that their questions were attached to their names.
But you know what they say — one person’s uncomfortable revelation is another’s laugh on Twitter.
Here are some of the best tweets on the matter.
Yo I didn’t know those ig questions weren’t anonymous and I told someone their head was shaped like an almond

I should’ve learned my lesson when I found out instagram polls weren’t anonymous & I was picking rude options, but nope I just had to go and type some rude shit into the questions thinking it was anonymous again
