The TSA has joined Instagram

Ever wonder what exactly the TSA confiscates from naughty passengers at airports around the country, but hate loading a whole web page? Good news! The TSA has launched their very own Instagram feed, displaying many of the items that they confiscate from passengers at security checkpoints.

The Instagram feed shares a lot of the same photos from their dedicated The TSA Blog “Week In Review” posts. The feed, located here only has 52 followers and 10 photos at the time of publishing. We are most excited to see what comments fellow Instagram users come up with, and we bet they won’t all be very nice. All the uploads at this point are still photos, but with Instagrams new found ability to upload video, anything is possible!

(Tip of the hat to Grant Martin at Forbes for first spotting the new account!)
