Facebook’s Instagram deal hasn’t even closed yet, but things are already getting weird with Twitter.
There’s now no “find your Twitter friends on Instagram” feature; Twitter has apparently cut off Instagram’s access to that API. Supposedly because Instagram — now 80 million users — is draining a lot of resources, but more likely payback for that time Facebook shut down Twitter’s “find your Twitter friends on Facebook” feature.
As an avid Instagram and Twitter user, this makes me a little upset (though finding Facebook friends on Instagram was always more useful to me). But that’s business between rivals, I guess.
Also, 15 weeks and counting since Jack Dorsey’s last Instagram pic.
