Instagram Pulls Twitter Cards Integration

The widely known photo sharing service Instagram has disabled its Twitter Cards integration. In order to see the pictures properly, users will have to click through to the Instagram's website to see the pictures or use its application. But Twitter have its own plans.

"We revamped our web properties, and now we're able to staff up teams to work on web properties with the Facebook acquisition. Obviously things change as a company evolves," says Kavin Systrom, Instagram's founder and CEO.

Images integration isn't pulled from other social network like Facebook, Tumblr and Foursquare. From what we know, Twitter is working hard on its own strong photo solution with picture filters and editing which should replace Instagram.

"Users are experiencing issues with viewing Instagram photos on Twitter. Issues include cropped images. This is due to Instagram disabling its Twitter cards integration, and as a result, photos are being displayed using a pre-cards experience. So, when users click on Tweets with an Instagram link, photos appear cropped," explained Twitter.
