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.

Now users have to click though to Instagram's website to view a photo posted to Twitter. »
