Can you pin your own comment on Instagram?

Sometimes, creators like to pin important information to the top of a comment feed. Unfortunately, unlike other social apps, you cannot pin your own comments on Instagram. Or at least you can’t pin comments on a post from the same Instagram account. You can only add, edit, or remove comments posted by your account.

If you want to pin comments made by yourself, you will have to comment from a secondary or alias Instagram account and then pin them from the original account. That is the only workaround at this time.
