Twitter confirmed Sunday that previews of photos from Instagram no longer appear on the social network.
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.
Last week, Instagram stopped supporting Twitter cards — which embed photos into tweets — meaning that tweeted pictures looked strangely cropped and off-center.
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.
