IG is 10 this year. Here’s how to find anyone’s FIRST IG post ever

While people now do it for the Gram, do you remember your first IG post ever? Scroll down to find a time machine that will show you your or anyone else’s first Instagram photo. Find out which tweet, with over 7.7m likes, became the most liked tweet ever and more in this week’s edition of Bytesized.

This the most liked tweet of all time

Obama takes spots 2 and 3 with a tweet about not being born to hate (4.3m) and paying homage to Kobe (4m).

Number 4 gets 2020 perfectly tweeting that May was a good day for astronauts to leave the earth (3.8m).

And, it was mentioned in last week’s edition, at number 5 with 3.3m and I’m one of them. 😋

Want to deliver a package? There’s an app for that. And that app is Uber.

Uber Connect launched this week and allows you to deliver packages. There are limitations though.

  • It can’t be worth more than R1500
  • Must weight less than 15kg
  • Must fit in the topbox of the delivery motorbike
  • And you can’t have medication, recreational drugs or dangerous or illegal items

Speaking of Uber…

South Africa is 97th in terms of mean broadband speed

In SA the average speed is 14.04Mbps. South Sudan has the slowest with 0.5Mbps. Most of the top 10 have average speeds of over 200Mbps. You can basically download a gig in a minute with that kind of speed.

Let’s go way, way back. How far? Back to your first Instagram post!

Enter a username and you’ll see their first IG post. The Gram is turning 10 in October which makes me feel REALLY old.

I think I posted my first IG using my iPod Touch (which I dropped in the bath after like a month and it then became a very expensive paperweight, which I am NOT still bitter about). This was a very blurry pic taken in Taiwan on a weekend away to a small island. Also, look at those likes.
