Twitter bringing photo filters to mobile apps just as Instagram packs up and leaves

    Irrelevant to me, considering I have always had to open the browser to view them on my blackberry…

      Blackberry? That’s some stone age s**t right there.

      With the latest version of Twitter for BlackBerry it now supports showing Instagram photos (and any other Twitter Card tweets) – well until Instagram pulled the plug. Other Twitter Card content shows fine though.

    Snapseed > Instacrap

    This d*ckhead Instagram move brought to you by none other than Facebook. Remember, we don’t like systems talking to each other. Unless of course we own them.

    Great, now I can tweet photos of my food, AND make them look retro!

    “While Android users can easily force the links to open in Instagram itself,”

    Wait, what? I can do WHAT?! How?

    What’s with this Polaroid retro crappy pics ?

    Guess for those with crappy smartphone cameras it’s an excuse to pass shitty pics as art .

    The TwitPic app has pretty much been doing this for a while now, using Aviary to touch-up the photos. I’ve heard that Twitter will use Aviary as well.

    Aviary is an AWESOME tool box for handling photos. But you can install it independently, so you always have the latest version and greatest features. The problem with the way TwitPic integrates it is that it doesn’t use the version you already have installed – and the add-ons you bought – it uses its own built-in version.

    In the end I always end-up touching up the photo with Aviary directly and then tweeting it – which is so well streamlined it’s not a burden.
