Many users opened the app to find that their feed rolled from left to right rather than up and down as usual.
While the redesign was only meant to be a small test, it mistakenly affected more than expected, according to Adam Mosseri, Instagram's Instagram.
"It would be a very small test that went wide accidentally. Must be resolved now. If you still see it, just restart the app. Happy holiday!" He said in a tweet.

new instagram update is absolutely terrible. Anyone who is responsible for user experience design out there must seriously re-evaluate their career choice.
