Here’s The Reason Why Instagram Disabled Photo Integration With Twitter
Twitter wrote this on their blog:
“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.
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.”
Some sources say that the reason behind this was that Instagram wanted people to view their pictures on their own site because this Integration feature between Instagram and Twitter was being helpful more to Twitter than to Instagram. In simple words Instagram was losing traffic because of this feature.
