Show us your tweets: Instagram sells you out edition

Posted 7:06pm on Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012

Ever since Instagram announced dramatic changes to its privacy policy, users of the photo-sharing app have been in an uproar: The company, now owned by Facebook, announced Monday that it has the perpetual right to sell users' photographs without payment or notification. Tweeters sounded off with anger, quippery and even a little perspective. Update: The nasty outcry prompted Instagram on Tuesday to backpedal a bit, with an announcement of forthcoming "modifications" to the new policy. Stay posted!
