Yesterday's double dose of holidays and slew of family gatherings may have sent your Instagram feed moving quicker than ever: the social network says this Thanksgiving was its busiest day yet. Instagram didn't dive into the specifics, but it's easy to imagine that photos of turkeys, menorahs, football, and the countless beautiful arrangements of food gave its users plenty to photograph and filter. And this is the second Thanksgiving in a row that's set a busiest-day-ever record for Instagram. Last year, the network said that it saw over 10 million photos on Thanksgiving, coming in at a rate of around 200 images per second. Instagram has only been expanding since then, so it's no surprise to see it crack that number this year.
