Unfortunately, I didn't post anything during these days but today I got an email which was probably sent to all beta testers with this text.
We care about your privacy on Instagram, so we wanted to let you know about a technical issue we recently found and fixed. It impacted certain Instagram accounts, including yours, that were using unreleased versions of Instagram as part of the Instagram Android beta program. **The issue affected some beta testers who had more than one Instagram account logged in on their device. For a few hours between June 4, 2018, and June 5, 2018, it caused some posts or stories published from one account to be posted to another account logged in on the same device.
Today Instagram is rolling out new alpha and beta updates with versions 55.0.0..0.7 and 184.108.40.206.82 respectively. There isn't a changelog provided for the beta, so let's check out the one for the alpha.
