    So guys, I came across this very disturbing news from Instagram that they are pulling the plug on anyone using the words "Insta" or "Gram" or even "IG" within their app names.

    Wonder what is going to happen to all those that have branded around such terms and have a domain name ending with .am, etc.

    Here is what Forbes had to say: http://www.forbes.com/sites/ewanspe...-developers-as-it-bans-use-of-insta-and-gram/

    What are your thoughts on how this is going to effect the bots, etc that relies on third-party apps?

    I have been developing a bot for the past couple of weeks and now I am worried of its future if it is going to rely on third-party apps.
