Before you should be able to see the instagram media embeded within your twitter feeds and now you’ll only get the link to the instagram media in the tweets and you need to click on the link in order to view the media. This is not a bug or technical issue with instagram or twitter, it’s just that instagram decided to partways with twitter and disabled the support for Twitter Cards.
This was confirmed by Twitter and explains that whole thing in their Status blog.
Instagram has disabled photo integration with Twitter. As a result, photos are no longer appearing in Tweets or user photo galleries.
While tweeting links to Instagram photos is still possible, you can no longer view the photos on Twitter, as was previously the case.
Disabling the support for twitter cards may be Instagram response to the news that twitter will now offer photo filters to its official app and also be a way for Instagram to direct users and non users back to http://instagram.com, to generate revenue.
If you can remember Facebook bought Instagram for $1 billion in cash and stock (ended at $735 Million) even if though the service do not have a revenue model.
