Instagram is rolling out pinned comments to all users in an effort to help people better moderate their comments section. Instagram announced the new feature on Twitter on Monday, July 7. Instagram's pinned comments, as the name implies, are similar to pinned posts and comments on other platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.
