Instagram has some explaining to do!

The social media site apparently tested changes on Thursday morning to the way users view their feeds and people got a little scared.

Normally, users just scroll down vertically through posts of people they follow.

With THIS tested format you had to swipe and tap through your feed; the unexpected change quickly trended on twitter with users voicing their displeasure.

Instagram head Adam Mosseri called the move a “Small test” that went “broader than they expected.”

Worry not, shortly after the update went live, and the following backlash, Instagram went BACK to its old format the people know and expect.
