Pinterest quietly added support for Twitter Cards (i.e., expanded tweets), so you can check out a pin someone’s shared on Twitter without actually having to head over to Pinterest.

Pinterest quietly added support for Twitter Cards (i.e., expanded tweets), so you can check out a pin someone’s shared on Twitter without actually having to head over to Pinterest itself. A spokesperson confirmed that Pinterest added Cards support early last week.
That leaves a lot of room for Pinterest. As Twitter becomes more visual, Pinterest fits right in. Pinterest is arguably the most visual community on the Web outside of YouTube, so it’s a strong match for the new Twitter. The one difference: Pins don’t appear to show up in Twitter’s “recent images” sidebar, as Instagram photos used to.
