Let’s face it. Half the population is posting photos on Instagram of everything from their day out to their lunch, to their nightlife. That being said, when was the last time you went to a concert and you didn’t see at least one person posting a snapshot to the photography-based app?

From the experience of venue operators, musicians, promoters and fans alike, #twitfromthepit allows users to share their sights and adventures to a wide audience, creating an online photographic community for music lovers worldwide.

Shutter 16 paired with Instagram to develop a hashtag that automatically posts a constant flow of #twitfromthepit photos to the front of our magazine’s website. The #twitfromthepit hashtag allows Instagram users to flow their experience to the center of our site, allowing millions of Shutter 16 visitors to view, in real-time, what music lovers are seeing.
