INSTAGRAM: Twitter Loses Ability to Properly Display Instagram Photos

Posted on 12/5/2012 by

Not exactly sure how this affects marketing, but it certainly does affect a lot of us.

Come on Twitter and Instagram, hug it out and lets get the bromance back in place.

Instagram on Wednesday disabled the ability for Twitter to properly display Instagram photos on its Web site and in its applications. The move escalates tensions between the two companies, which were once friends in the battle against Facebook but have now become direct competitors.

In a status update on Twitter’s Web site, the company said Instagram had disabled its integration with Twitter cards, which are used to display images and content within Twitter messages.

“Users are experiencing issues with viewing Instagram photos on Twitter,” the post said. “This is due to Instagram disabling its Twitter cards integration, and as a result, photos are being displayed using a pre-cards experience.”
