Instagram embedding on Twitter is no more: Twitter photo filters incoming
In an attempt to corner off Twitter-integration from any third-party applications, Twitter has now announced that photo integration from Instagram will no longer work, meaning tweets with images will not have an image embedded in the tweet, but rather a traditional link to the image. Furthermore, images will not appear in the user photo gallery either.
Additionally, users are reporting issues with viewing Instagram photos on Twitter by clicking links. One of these issues includes images being cropped. This is because Instagram disabling its Twitter card integration, and as a result, photos are being displayed as pre-cards.
With Twitter fighting to keep integration from other social networks to a minimal, what is it trying to achieve by disabling things like embedded images? We can answer that.
