The jig is up: Instagram officially tells people when you screenshot their stories
First the non-chronological timeline, now this
by Una Dabiero
If you're the type of bitch who sends Insta story screenshots in your group message, I have some reallly bad news for you. Instagram is going to start telling people when you screenshot their stories. No, I'm not kidding. The days of slamming Becky for her horrible bangs or making fun of Local Nicole for the constant pics of her grubby baby are over.
The app told TechCrunch they're testing screenshot notifications on their stories — so it's not official for everyone yet. But it's definitely coming soon.
Apparently, an asterisk will pop-up next to your name after you screenshot, revealing that you are, in fact, a stalker.

Honestly, I'm pretty pissed at Instagram right now. First, a non-chronological timeline, and now this? Fuck them. If you need me, I'll be mourning the meme throw-downs my friends had over screenshots of my exes' story. Oh, and looking for the Instagram HQ contact numbers. I just wanna talk.
