How to Post, Read, or Reply on Instagram


Instagram Notes, a tool that somewhat resembles Twitter but is exclusive to the Meta-owned social network, has became available to users.

Given that it is still a relatively new function, some people might not know how it operates or where to look for the posts in the first place.

But no longer perspire. For the brand-new Instagram Notes feature, we wrote a guide.

Twitter vs. Instagram Notes: What’s the Difference?

According to a report by Make Use Of, Instagram’s new Notes function now allows users to make brief text updates or statuses. Therefore, if you enjoy tweeting on Twitter, this can be a good substitute.

The new function does not quite resemble Twitter, though. Instead, there are a few key differences in the way it functions as a whole.

Like tweets, the Instagram function has a character limit. But with only 60 characters, it is significantly breezier. However, users must be succinct, or as they put it, “short and sweet.”

In addition, the brief words are time-limited, much to how Stories operate. All Notes statuses are doomed to disappear after a day or 24 hours.

There is no way to start a thread to get around the restriction, unlike how Twitter users do it, if you find yourself going over the limit.

Additionally, Notes only contain text and emoticons. So bid adieu to your pictures, videos, and favourite GIFs.

Make Use Of also points out that only your mutual followers and followers or just your Close Friends can see the posts you make using the Notes feature.

The new Notes function is located directly above your Direct Messages area, if you are having trouble finding it. According to The Verge, you will need to upgrade your Instagram app if it isn’t there.

You can start publishing and reading new Notes updates after it has been installed.

To do this, click or tap the “Leave a note” button in the upper left corner of the screen, which features a plus sign.

A pop-up will then ask you to create a Note after that. Your “Close Friends” are one of the options for choosing who can access your post after you’ve typed it.
