Yesterday, Facebook-owned Instagram debuted "Stories," a new way to create photo and video slideshows and share them for 24 hours with friends. But it seemed awfully familiar to those who already use Snapchat, which has had the feature since 2013.
But what did Twitter users out on the sidelines of those two social networks have to say about it?
Getting 10-20x more views on #InstagramStories than on Snapchat. Several more years invested in IG, much bigger audience there. Fad, or nah?— Friends call me Andy (@adnys) August 3, 2016
I hope I’m not the only one who thinks #InstagramStories is pretty cool. I feel like I am. Don’t throw rocks at me.— Harjit Bhandal (@harjitwashere) August 3, 2016
