Here is the latest report that Instagram, a photo sharing service have just announced that their services reaches the rope of 80 million users but there is a sad news as well that Twitter decided to remove its API.
Now it shows something note instead of message that “Unable to Find Friends. Twitter no longer allows its users to access this information in Instagram via the Twitter API. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
On the other hand TechCrunch said that “Twitter has decided to turn off its API for Instagram although other social apps, such as The Fancy and Foursquare, still get access.”
“There could be many reasons for this. It could be Instagram’s sheer size — the photo sharing app announced today that it now has 80 million users; it could be competition with Facebook since Instagram is now owned by the social network giant; or it could be that Twitter wanted more control over user experience on its platform.”
A Spokesperson from Twitter told the CNET that “We understand that there’s great value associated with Twitter’s follow graph data, and we can confirm that it is no longer available within Instagram.”
