Pinterest adds Twitter Cards support

Pinterest adds Twitter Cards support

Instagram's decision to stop support may have been well-publicized, as was Twitter's response -- to introduce its own photo filters.

However, while Instagram was packing its bags, Pinterest, the pin-board style image-sharing site, has suddenly, without a hint of forewarning, started supporting Twitter Cards.

It means that Twitter users can now view full images of a linked Pinterest picture without having to launch a new window. The move could also help to boost Pinterest's profile and popularity. Though already used by millions of people every day, the site has developed a reputation within the tech community as a destination for young women and wedding planners.
