Remember in fifth grade when your one Bff stopped talking to you because you sat at lunch with another Bff? That's kind of what Facebook is doing to its users over its obvious jealousy of their ongoing relationship with Twitter.
When Mark Zuckerberg's mammoth social networking site bought Instagram, one of its first moves was to disable any feature that contributed to what was thus far seamless compatibility with Twitter. In other words, "I'm not gonna talk to you anymore if you're gonna play with them."
First Instagram sent out a software update that disabled the "Find Twitter Friends" feature. Then they disabled "@" reply tags from appearing in tweets sent by the app. In a final blow to its "friends," Instagram disabled Twitter Cards, which allow content to be previewed from within a tweet. Now users have to click though to Instagram's website to view a photo posted to Twitter. »
