    its nokia's APPhighlight twitter account... i dont think its a scam
    uh no it is not. It is an account posing as such. They first called themselves Nokia app highlights, then they changed their name to wpapphighlights. This is not legit people.

    people, please stop following or reading that account. It is clearly not an actual representative from any Windows Team or Nokia. The account just started tweeting 9 days ago.
    Just a kid who wants followers.

    What is Instagram and how did it get so popular? To the uninitiated eye (mine) it looks like it just adds a filter to your pictures, which you then upload to Facebook so your friends can marvel at your pro photography skills. Surely there must be more to it than this...

    EDIT: Nevermind, this explained everything

    Yeah, we were tipped on that last night. Luckily, we're smart enough to ignore it Seemed obviously fake to us, even the wording was off.

    ps Don't read Insideris, they have no standards for posting.

    They seem to suggest Pandora is coming too.

    Pandora was already announced at the WP8 reveal, so of course it's coming. When is another matter.

    It started as the hipsters twitter with pics and since it was iPhone only at first it was exclusive so they felt they were so cool. It finally spilled over to Android earlier this year and due to so many iPhone users already being on it, many of the Android crowd followed because it was the new in thing. And here we are today. It's popular right now so that's what people want.

    Angry Birds Roost isn't that bad. You get free wallpapers, ringtones, a cool picture app, and some helpful walkthroughs.
    Sure, it's great for free, but if you don't have the actual app available, what's the point in making a meta-app available instead?

    So is that not a verified account?
    Nope. @nokiahighlights admitted they weren't an actual Nokia account and that they were going to change to @wp8highlights. As of now, the former account is suspended and the latter account doesn't exist.

    They could be talking about molome. I know they have been working on making the app multi platform. The android app is already available, wp8 and ios will be coming soon.

    Doesn't matter if it comes or not... the new Terms of Service taking effect in January officially declare that Instagram can take ANY of your pictures and content and use it however they want.

    Terms of Use • Instagram

    "Some or all of the Service may be supported by advertising revenue. To help us deliver interesting paid or sponsored content or promotions, you agree that a business or other entity may pay us to display your username, likeness, photos (along with any associated metadata), and/or actions you take, in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you. If you are under the age of eighteen (18), or under any other applicable age of majority, you represent that at least one of your parents or legal guardians has also agreed to this provision (and the use of your name, likeness, username, and/or photos (along with any associated metadata)) on your behalf."

    Translation: You agree that we can do whatever we want, and you're a moron if you use our service.

    And once again, that twitter account is suspended, proving once and again that nothing at all that was said is likely to be accurate. How's about a lock on this thread so it can just die?

    Closing thread, since those Tweets were obviously false. WPCentral writers will have front page news articles if Nokia or any other Windows Phones get Instagram.
