Twitter For Science Purposes, I Need To Know What You Guys Call Instagram For Short

As a young millennial myself, I think it’s super interesting to see how factors like technology not only shape entire lifestyles or habits between generations, but how these differences show up in the smallest ways.

twitter @steph_mcca I’m a Gen Xer and I call it Insta but hate myself every time I do. Which is pretty on brand for my generation.
