Instagram Gives Twitter the Bird
Joyce Park stashed this in Tech biz
Cropping the images is such a great strategic move by Instagram:
From now on, you may happen to notice Instagram photos appearing oddly on Twitter. Some images may appear cropped or somewhat off. This is not a bug. It’s because Instagram doesn’t want to play nice with Twitter anymore.
In a post to Twitter’s status blog on Wednesday morning, the company notified users that Instagram has disabled its integration with Twitter Cards, the technology Twitter uses to display multimedia inside of tweets on the service.
Twitter Inc has been telling PandaWhale that the best way to drive traffic to our site is through Cards.
I think Instagram just figured out a better way.
