1.We can all relax….#EDM is back on Instagram…
In your “wtf?” moment for Thursday, just one day after releasing a public statement saying that #EDM had been blocked because it “was being used to share content that violates guidelines around nudity,” Instagram has now reinstated the hashtag, much to David Guetta‘s relief.
While Instagram has yet to publicly comment on the reversal, in an original statement of the incident, a spokesperson said, “We’re working on a way to more quickly restore certain hashtags that have previously been blocked. We’re also working on ways to better communicate our policies around hashtags.”
Instagram for nudity? Don’t people know what Tumblr and Snap Chat are?

In further confirmation of the news, Backstreets.com also dropped a hint that the Springsteen will give the Lawrenceville, New Jersey host a big send-off on his final air date tonight.
“You REALLY won’t want to miss the final Daily Show with Jon Stewart tomorrow night,” the website shared on Twitter. When reached for comment, Daily Show said “we are not discussing any elements in regards to tonight’s taping.”
Guess it’s time to brush on the lyrics for “Born in the U.S.A.”
