USA Today: Instagram removed the option to send pictures to Twitter and plans to cut off the ability to embed photos on the site.
"We wanted to make sure we direct users to where the content lives originally, so they get the full Instagram experience," Instagram CEO Kevin System said, "It's just about where do you go to interact with that image? We want that to be on Instagram.com because it has a better user experience currently."
Instagram, which is now owned by Facebook, rolled out web pages for its users last month. When someone clicks on an Instagram link in a photo, they will now be directed to the user's Instagram web page to view the photo.
