In recent days, Instagram which is owned by Facebook, shut down support for twitter, Pinterest now adds support for Twitter.
In recent days, Pinterest quietly and under the radar added support for Twitter Cards. Now Twitter users can check out someone’s pin shared on Twitter, without heading over to Pinterest. A recent spokesman confirmed that Pinterest indeed added Cards support last week.
This comes in the wake of Instagram dropped the card support for Twitter, the famous microblogging site. The benefit of this move is that Twitter users can view the pin, without going to Pinterest itself, whereas Instragram dropped support in an obvious attempt to get users to stay on Instagram, and thus heading to Facebook.
As Twitter becomes more visual, Pinterest is a perfect fit, Pinterest is arguably the most visual community aside from Youtube.
Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard. Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. Twitter is a real-time information network that connects you to the latest stories, ideas, opinions and news about what you find interesting. Simply find the accounts you find most compelling and follow the conversations.
