Meek Mill enjoyed a temporary respite from Instagram's "siren song."
Yesterday, many were left considering a foray into the great outdoors during the Great IG Crash Of 2K19, which some have already dubbed "Y2K2." As it happens, Meek Mill was among those left in a reflective state, as the rapper took to Twitter to weigh the benefits of an Instagram-free world. "The Gram down today?" he inquires, "that means capping is down 74% percent today!" Not only did the crash lead to a noted decrease in "Capping," but also in the frequency of naked girl sightings. Now, this might regularly be a negative side effect, but Meek is quick to ponder some of the low key benefits.

"The wildest part is when you scrolling and see ya man girl twerking or half naked on the gram throwing thirst traps," says Meek. "That's some new shit I had to learn how to control mentally." As he sees it, perhaps removing the temptation altogether might lead to a freer mind, albeit one that witnesses fewer scantily clad dames. Life is always filled with trade-offs, is it not?
In truth, the temporary crash of both FaceBook and Instagram led to several what-ifs, largely centered around a social-media-free world? Are we as a society pot-committed, to use a poker term? Or could we simply quit cold-turkey, left to live like our ancestors of yore. Provided HNHH was still around, of course.
