It’s Over: Instagram Officially Cuts Off Photo Viewing on Twitter

AllThingsD is reporting Instagram has officially ceased support for Twitter cards technology today, as confirmed to the publication via a Facebook spokesperson (the latter acquired Instagram for $1 billion back in September):

Instagram has completely turned off support for Twitter cards technology on Sunday, a Facebook spokesperson confirmed to AllThingsD.

Users will still be able to share Instagram images to Twitter, but users will no longer be able to see them directly within their Twitter stream within third party apps and on the website.

Earlier it was reported Twitter is set to introduce its own photo filters for users looking to share images on the social network before the end of the year.

Last week, the New York Times reported Instagram was set to turn off the Twitter cards feature. Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom, told the LeWeb conference last Wednesday the company had decided it would make better sense for Instagram users to view images on the website instead.

What do you think about this decision by Instagram?
