"Whenever I follow these pages I find my timeline cluttered with useless, outdated and stolen posts that I’ve seen from many other meme pages already. This is why I refuse to follow them. Instagram is about photos, not tweets. People should [go to] Twitter for that," said the University of Manchester student.
He added that his other gripe with such pages was the time it typically takes for them to accept his request to follow. He said: "These Instagram users who are constantly sending memes from private pages do not seem to understand the difficulty in following the pages and waiting for what seems like forever for the pages to accept my request."
