Instagram Leaves Twitter Party - Pinterest Shows Up

Instagram out -- Pinterest in?

Pinterest Shows Up to the Twitter Party Just as Instagram Leaves | Wired Business | "If you’re still downcast over the likelihood that your Instagram photos will (probably) never again show up on Twitter’s website or apps, you may get a lift from knowing that Pinterest just added support for Twitter cards (what amounts to a snapshot of the shared content). That’s right, from now on, you’ll be able to see shared pins on Twitter without going to or a Pinterest app. Social media manager and Pinterest power user Kelly Lieberman first noticed the changes. A spokesperson for Pinterest confirmed that the company began limited testing of Twitter cards early last week, before Instagram pulled support. My gut reaction to the news was “Who cares?,” as I’ve never seen someone share a pin on Twitter. Turns out I follow the wrong people, because there are plenty of links to pins on the micro-blogging site. Now Pinterest Twitter cards are popping up as well, where you can expand a tweet to see the pin, the name of the board, and the pin’s description. To see the pin, just click “view photo” on Twitter’s desktop site, or tap a tweet in the Twitter apps. . . ."
