Instagram have announced new ‘modes’ including Quiet Mode, Hidden Words for Recommendations and Not Interested Multi Select.
Quiet Mode will allow you to select days and times where you don’t want to receive any notifications from Instagram. Allowing you to choose the days and times you will be more active on the platform.
Hidden Words for Recommendations – Hidden words currently exist in DM’s and comments but the feature is now being expanded to Recommendations.

Twitter Updates Search
Twitter is looking into updating its search feature to now allow spelling mistakes. In the past, the Twitter search field would come up empty if you made a spelling mistake in your search.
