This study provides data in the form of a small corpus on the use of online language in the Instagram microblog. The focus of this research is in the form of language distortion in the COVID 19 pandemic era. Instagram as a medium makes it easy for its users to communicate with other users for free. Instagram has an influence especially on languages that are created by the creativity of its users. This type of research is descriptive qualitative. The data used in this study used a small corpus, namely 200 comments in the form of words, phrases, clauses, and fragments from Instagram uploaded comments @Lambe_Turah which were taken randomly so that all comments were taken randomly from random uploads. The data were obtained by using the free listening method, engaging, and speaking with the note-taking technique. The results showed that linguistic deviations found on Instagram were non-standard capital letters, excessive use of punctuation marks, emojis, repetitive characters, laughter, abbreviations, and grammatical deviations. Online languages are believed to be creative and unique and these linguistic features indicate that online languages are a combination of written and spoken communication and have paved the way for online languages.
