This Instagram DM hack is about to save you a lot of drunken embarrassment
For those of you who love to drunk-text your ex
by Jenn Ficarra
As the resident babe Instagram guru, I am back with another life-changing Instagram "hack" that will significantly decrease your humiliation by 85 percent.
Recently, I had made the mistake of drinking too many glasses of Pinot Noir and clicking over to a former hook-ups Instagram. I thought "Hey, why not slide into those DMs?"
Big mistake. Huge!
The next morning I clicked back and saw that he had yet to read my humiliating message. I was blessed. And for a moment, I thought that it would be wonderful if this message could just disappear. I don't know what compelled me to do it but I held down my message when suddenly, an option to "unsend" appeared. I clicked it and saved my soul.
Yes, you're reading that right — you can unsend Instagram DMs.

Instagram really in 2027 with the unsend button for their DMs.

So often we are forced to live in a world where we have to deal with our consequences but now, Instagram has made it so that we never have to pay the piper. Instead, we can erase our mistakes as if they never happened at all.
That celeb you sent a nude to? Unsend!
Your ex whom you sent a long, drunk message to? Unsend!
Your mom who you accidentally sent a lewd meme to? Unsend!
Now, the sky is the limit. We can play with fire and avoid getting burned. We can take a risk and then take it back the minute we realize we made a massive mistake.
Instagram letting us unsend DMs is the gift that keeps on giving. It is what we, as a collective, deserve in these times of turmoil and despair.
God bless you, Instagram, and you're enabling of our hot mess behavior. Couldn't do it without you. Happy Unsending!

This is not satire: I 100 percent believe Jake Paul will be the president before we die
It’s Paul/Paul 2028, bro!

I'm as happy as anybody else that a known pedophile didn't manage to snag a seat in Congress last night, but honestly, the American political sphere is still beyond fucked. Donald Trump, the star of a reality TV that wasn't even popular outside of a brief, crazy time in like, 2004 has been the president…
I asked finance bros on The League to explain Bitcoin to me
They were NOT helpful

Bitcoin! It's everywhere, and I'm not totally sure what it is. I don't want to name names, but a fellow babe writer thought it was the currency from Farmville until like, yesterday. So that's where our newsroom is at in terms of the cryptocurrency wave. When I don't understand something, I usually try to do…
