3 Alternatives to Showing Photos on Twitter after the Instagram Yank

If you post a photo with text from Instagram to Twitter, your photo will no longer show up on Twitter. Lots of blogs have already covered this story. Some have even gone so far as to defend this decision.

If you’re looking for photo services that haven’t yanked Twitter cards. Here are 3 that are cool to use.

  1. There’s Camera+ which has lots of filters and photo editing tools. The main feature that I like about Camera+ is the light box that allows you to select and arrange which images to edit.
    Here’s an example of Camera+ embedded into Twitter.
  2. Path is okay if you don’t mind blasting your closest friends with Twitter updates. The iPad version of this app is really beautiful and lots of thought went into the UI. Here’s its embed.
  3. Via.Me* is hands down the best for power users that need to post images to both Twitter and Facebook. Your photos also show up Pinterest-like on the app’s web page for leisurely desktop viewing. Below is Via.Me in a Twitter card.

* Disclosure: I work on the API at Via.Me.

I’d also not discount the original Flickr – their mobile app now uses the native camera and using a 3rd party app such as mine in the link above users can have no-touch sharing to both Facebook & Twitter.

Hey, thanks for mentioning that. I’m checking it out now. I also use, but the community is not a fan of photos taken with the iPhone. ๐Ÿ™‚ My iPhone photos have the lowest scores there.
