Mobypicture integration with Twitter app being removed

Reports of issues with integration prompt removal

Following widespread reports of problems with the iOS app, Twitter is planning on removing support for photo and video sharing site Mobypicture in a future update of the app. The app itself is reporting data about the shared media improperly on occasion, sometimes causing uploads to the service to not upload completely, or display properly.

Mobypicture researched the issue, and has already deployed a fix. Reportedly, Twitter contacted Mobypicture officials, and affirmed that it would be removed, but would still consider using the service in the future. Users can still use the Mobypicture application and include an URL in a tweet, but the automatic integration will be removed soon.

"Moby brought photo and video sharing to Twitter," founder Mathys van Abbe said in a statement to The Next Web. "It saddens us that Twitter is removing us from their own apps even though users really love Moby as an option because of the way we respect their rights, don't show ads and share to all different social sites."
