Twitter Is Hunting Monetization Wabbits, blocks API on Instagram

See on Scoop.itSocial Media Photography

Twitter is on the hunt to monetize when you think about the recent changes its causing across the social media landscape. LinkedIn changed to no longer allow tweets flowing inbound. You can still create a message and send it out to Twitter. Now, Twitter apparently blocked API access on Instagram to search for Twitter friends. Wow. Almost anything can flow into Twitter but sharing that data outside of Twitter is becoming a Spiderman act of climbing walls.

 

Its great that Twitter wants to position itself for better monetization with potential businesses. Mobile apps are on the rise and social analytics tools are improving. The question is: will the move to pull back on data sharing and buying out companies that hinge on better features than the Twitter site itself essentially burn relationships? -Nakeva
