The Twitter-Instagram feud continues, with Instagram today disabling a feature that allows photos to be properly displayed on Twitter's Web site and apps.

Twitter noted in a status update today that Instagram disabled its Twitter cards integration. What that means is photos from Instagram are difficult to view and appear cropped or off center.

Instagram Chief Executive Kevin Systrom, meanwhile, said today at the LeWeb conference in Paris that while the relationship with Twitter is changing, Instagram will remain integrated with Twitter in some form.

The above cnet story notes that "Twitter is expected to introduce its own set of photo filters [news.cnet.com] through its mobile apps", citing another cnet story on the topic.

About 8 hrs ago, Mashable released a story along the same lines, with further details...

Perhaps playing with expectations, Twitter's will be bigger.... ;)

Twitter's new photo app might offer pictures in a higher resolution than those of Instagram, according to The Next Web. Twitter's pictures will reportedly be square like Instagram's, but will be offered in 10241024-pixel resolution, rather than the latter's significantly smaller 612x612 pixels.
