According to Mashable.com, rumours abound that Instagram and Twitter are at each other’s throats over issues encountered by users who try to share images using the micro-blogging platform.
Instagram, who were bought by Facebook for the princely sum of $1 billion earlier this year, reportedly disabled key functionality that allowed users to share their images via Twitter. This fueled speculation that a war was beginning between the two blue giants of the social media world, with Instagram’s new owners encouraging a break from a key competitor.
However, Instagram’s CEO appears to have put paid to the rumours, promising that the two platforms will “always be integrated“. Despite this public denial, keen observers will note that Twitter had earlier stung the photo-sharing site by denying it the ability to use its API. Regardless, it would appear that users can depend on stability for the time being.
The fact that these kind of conflicts crop up in this constantly-evolving field only lends further support to the argument that your business needs a team who are always up to date with industry developments.
