After a series of posts were accidentally published, Bieber says he is not back on Instagram.

Just hours after it appeared Justin Bieber had reactivated his Instagram, the singer said he is not back on the social media network.

"Still no Instagram it was an accident," Bieber wrote on Twitter.

On Monday morning it looked like Bieber had reactivated his account, with posts that were dated a week ago being shown on his account. The posts all centered on Bieber's new dog Todd.

These posts came two weeks after Bieber famously deactivated his account, in responds to mean comments about his purported girlfriend Sofia Richie.

This was the last post Bieber made before things got shut down, imploring his 77.8 million followers to stop being "so mean to people that I like."
