Hello World! Jennifer Aniston chose 2019 to be the year she officially joins Instagram. But she came to the social media platform with a bigger bang than anyone could have expected. In fact, she literally broke the internet!
Jennifer Aniston finally decided to give Instagram an official try, and she chose 2019 to be her year. And she showed the world how Friends is still the world’s most favourite show!
Added to her evergreen charm, Friends characters Ross Geller and Rachel Green helped her break records owned by royals Meghan Markle and Prince Harry!
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry held Guinness World Record for bagging the fastest million followers. But Jennifer Aniston spread her charm on Instagram in lesser time. She clocked 5 hours and 16 minutes to set a new Guinness World Record. It seemed that all the traffic on Instagram was diverted to the gorgeous Rachel Green for a moment.
Breaking the internet, literally
Jennifer Aniston ‘literally’ broke Instagram when she joined it on 16 October, 2019. She crashed the social media platform and her fans had faced issues while clicking the ‘follow’ icon. In her second post on Instagram, Jennifer Aniston apologised for being the cause of the tech issue. She captioned it, “I swear I didn’t mean to break it… Thank you guys for the kind, glitchy welcome ❤️” Pun intended.
Yes, the glitch was really there. An Instagram spokesperson confirmed the same to CNN.”We are aware that some people were having issues following Jen’s profile. We are thrilled to have this ‘Friend’ as part of the Instagram community.”
But Jennifer did not rest there. She has many glitch-plans it seems! One of her comments went so viral that over 31,000 people liked it!. Kaitlyn Bristowe asked her whether Ross and Rachel are still together. To which the 50-year-old replied, “Well we’re on a break.”
The long journey ahead
Currently, Cristiano Ronaldo holds the most followers on Instagram. He has a whopping 186.5 million Instagram followers. And within three days since she went live on Instagram, Jennifer Aniston has bagged 13.3 million followers (fiercely growing). We sure have a strong contender!
Jennifer Anniston featured on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live‘ and revealed that she was “the most reluctant person to ever join Instagram.” While she did have a secret account before, Jennifer Aniston chose to come out to her fans. “It was a stalker account, yes. But I was thinking about doing this.”
