Twitter user were experiencing issues with viewing Instagram photos on Twitter since a couple of days. They were also complaining about Instagram pics that were present as Gallery cards earlier, were not being shown now. There were complaints of cropped images too. All this was happening because of Instagram disabling its Twitter cards integration.
But now Twitter has confirmed this officially and posted a Status update to confirm this:
“Instagram has disabled photo integration with Twitter. As a result, photos are no longer appearing in Tweets or user photo galleries.
While tweeting links to Instagram photos is still possible, you can no longer view the photos on Twitter, as was previously the case. “
So its official now! Instagram has killed its photo integration with Twitter. Though you can tweet these links to your photos and they will function like a normal link, and photos won’t be shown in-line within Twitter.
Both Instagram and Twitter are very popular service, and users will surely miss this and hope it gets revived or some workaround is available soon.
Twitter is already working on and is all set to release a Photo Filter Tool by the end of this year – meanwhile Chrome users may want to have a look at InstaTwit.
