Instagram has received a makeover, and Twitter has lost its mind.

On May 11, the photo sharing app launched a brand new interface, including a new icon. In a press release, Instagram explained that its users have evolved over its five years of existence.

Today, Instagram believes itself to be “a global community of interests sharing more than 80 million photos and videos every day.”

The application’s new look intends to reflect how “vibrant and diverse” its users’ “storytelling has become.”

Bringing the focus to users’ photos and videos, the “simpler design” does not change how its users navigate the app.

Their editing apps, Hyperlapse, Layout, and Boomerang, were also given totally redesigned icons.

However, it’s the photo-sharing giant’s new icon that has Twitter users freaking out. Generally it seems the updates layout has been well-received, but the icon is very much disliked.
