The creators of the app have decided to unblock the hashtag #EDM after just 24 hours


Yesterday we reported on the news that Instagram had suddenly blocked its users from using the hashtag #EDM. It was, as suspected, discovered that it was initially blocked because it “was being used to share content that violates [their] guidelines around nudity” according to Instagram spokesperson Gabe Madway, as reported by TIME.

However, upon waking up this morning, #EDM is now unblocked and all 11,000,000+ posts are searchable again. I’d say it’s safe to assume that the highly populated EDM community had something to do with such a swift reversal. Apparently your wish is their command. Get tagging EDM fans!
