We built a JSON ingestor for Twitter and could *possibly* do so for this
data as well.

My question is whether there is enough demand for such a tool. Is this sort
of Instagram data widely available to academic researchers? The reason we
built a Twitter JSON ingestor is that there are many academics with raw
Twitter data in JSON format, or with Twitter-approved access to data  (at
least for now) they cannot easily use, but my impression was that Instagram
data in JSON format was not floating around.

Getting the data into a spreadsheet would enable some forms of analysis,
but as with Tweets, it would decimate the literal meaning of many posts if
you examine the data outside of the platform display.
