            // INSTAGRAM
            instagram:{
                accounts: ['@teslamotors','#teslamotors'],  //Array: Specify a list of accounts from which to pull posts
                limit: 2,                                    //Integer: max number of posts to load

To alter the default post markup, edit template.html or pass a template string into the template_html parameter.
