If you do a wide pull up you would move origin and insertion apart from each other and this is counterproductive to the optimal chest activation.

You also pull both arms from above your head to the front of your body if your would pull your arms back to a total extension like you do it in a Body Row or an Arch Back  Pull Ups  You would move the origin and insertion away from each other.
