So, you’re probably aware of the Instagram vs. Twitter rift, in which Twitter cut off Instagram’s “find friends from Twitter” feature after which Instagram disabled photo integration with Twitter.

If you don’t see any recent images, just type in “photography” in the Twitter website search box. You should see the image previews in your results. Like so:
