Well, yesterday the inevitable took place and the photo sharing service shut down any capability to share a photo with Twitter (other than a URL). An update to last week’s status report from Twitter confirms this.
Update: Dec 9, 3:10pm PST
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.
Will not sharing tweets in Facebook be next? (I sure hope so!).
All Things D has reported that Twitter is trying to introduce its own photo
butchering doctoring filtering service. Just what we need right?
Forget Lo-Fi and Toaster. There may be a sepia-toned little bird under the tree this Christmas.
Twitter is making a big push to release a series of photo filters to be used inside the official Twitter app before the end of the year, according to sources familiar with the matter.
The goal is to release the camera filters in an application update in time for the holiday season, these sources say.
It looks like we are rapidly moving toward a social world where there will be less and less sharing across platforms as each one acquires its own version of the same types of add-on services to their distinct social foundation.
What do you think of that?
