Twitter will now let you see a preview of Instagram links shared on the platform. The social network site announced on Wednesday the feature will be rolling out on Android, iOS and the web. This puts an end to a long-running power struggle between Twitter and Instagram when the latter killed off a similar feature since 2012.

Until now, all Instagram photos shared on Twitter appeared as links, to see the photos, users have to click on them after which they will be redirected to Instagram to view a particular photo. This is because Instagram would rather have you on its platform, while Twitter also wanted users to post and share these pictures on its platform.

With preview cards now rolling out to everyone, Twitter users will see a thumbnail of the post when an Instagram link is shared on Twitter. Users can now decide whether the post is worth opening or not.
