Instagram name is still a hit, not least in China, where success is evidenced by the number of photos dipload to Sina Weibo.
Sina Weibo, or the many who call it a Twitter version of China, reportedly inundated by many as a hundred thousand images Instagram. This happened just a month after the lapse Instagram adds support to the microblogging service.
The report further states that users are enamored with Sina Weibo Instagram and register themselves, there are as many as 50,000, as reported by TheNextWeb, Tuesday (04/01/2012).
