Given that Instagram has a community of its own and that people do subscribe to other Instagram accounts, naturally @mentions do pop up ever so often. However those @mentions could get confusing especially when you have friends on Twitter and Instagram who have different handles. This might be because their username was already taken on Twitter/Instagram which means that had to come up with an alternative. Granted it’s not a huge inconvenience but it could get confusing once in a while. Well the good news is that if you’re an avid user of both Twitter and Instagram along with your friends, Instagram has updated itself and will now “magically” translate @mentions for users whose Twitter and Instagram handles differ. Like we said, it’s not a huge inconvenience before but we guess now it’s just one less thing to think about. If you’d like to learn more about this update, head on over to Instagram’s blog for the details.
