Facebook Vs Twitter

Over the weekend Facebook-owned Instragram pulled the photos that its users had posted to Twitter.
In a company blog post, Twitter said that Instagram has “disabled photo integration with Twitter,” though tweeting links to Instagram photos is still possible. Photos from Instagram no longer appear in Twitter user photo galleries. In an interview at a Paris tech show last week, Instagram founder Kevin Systrom said that Instagram would eventually take all photo previews out of Twitter, saying that the snapshot company was undergoing an “evolution” in how it shares its content. “We will always be integrated with Twitter in a way that you can tweet out a photo from Instagram to Twitter,” Systrom told the conference attendees, but he said that Instagram wants to drive traffic back to its own site.
You must now click twice to see an Instagram photo. Nightmare.
