Instagram is bringing back support for Twitter Card previews
starting today. Now when users share an Instagram link on Twitter,
a preview of the post will be shown in the tweet. Prior to this
change, when users posted an Instagram link on Twitter, the tweet
would only display the URL of the Instagram link.
The social media platform made the controversial decision to
remove Twitter Card support back in 2012. At the time, Instagram
founder Kevin Systrom said the reason was that Instagram wanted to
take control of its content and that the company wanted images to
be viewed on Instagram, as opposed to Twitter.
