This is incredible (and I’m testing it as we speak!)

Thanks Tauhid!

I’m sure Instagram will take action. Already, I’ve seen they are starting to “delete” or perhaps, relocate expired images. If I go to the URL of an image that was once on someone’s Story, I now get a “Content not found” error. Instagram must be slowly running a batch process to move these files, since the links to images recently deleted still work (for now).

Facebook/Instagram have been pretty strict about this sort of authorized usage of their APIs in the past, and I’m surprised I haven’t received a Cease & Desist Letter yet.
