Abstract (in English): 

Instagram poetry, a type of digital poetry is, as the name implies, poetry that is produced for distribution through the social media channel Instagram and most usually incorporates creative typography with bite size verses. 

Instagram poetry can demonstrate the cultural impact of a posthuman cyborgian fluidity of borders and forms in that we essentially find ourselves left with anthropophagic texts - cannibalistic texts that remix, reuse and re-appropriate content. Digital texts can no longer be regarded as singular standalone objects rather they are constantly changing assemblages in which inequalities and inefficiencies in their operations drive them towards breakdown, disruption, innovation and change
