it’s hard to believe, but, yes, this is a real sentence: users can now collage giphy GIF stickers all over their instagrams. bouncing letters, pizzas in space, jewels, hearts, 1000000s, rainbows, thought-bubbles, pixelated hearts — refinery29 said something about crying drakes? they’re all anxiously awaiting your divine use of them. the catch is: they’re only available in your story. quite a lot of people us the story feature. instagram hopes to see even more after today.

according to instagram’s press release, ‘these animated stickers help you make any photo or video funny, interesting or creative.’ those incapable of being funny, interesting, or creative on their own, or those who just need a little extra boost, or those who just love giphys, rejoice — perhaps your instagram reign can finally begin.
