We don't have exactly the same barrier but on mobile and web versions we have been able to see "create story pin" button from time to time. Sometimes when we click to add the Pin button we see "Story" as an option and sometimes it is just gone. We do not know the reason.

You will wear a story!

That's really interesting. I've loved the story pins and was sad to get this same email. So are they changing the story pins in some way rather than stopping them?

@allaboutbabyblog we hear ya! The intention with Story Pins, though, is to make it possible to tell your entire story on Pinterest without having to link to an external site. Best practice here is to keep your user on your Story Pin and avoid adding links in your copy as it can decrease the quality of your Pin. 📌
