How To Link Twitter And Instagram

Creating the Link

Opening your profile in the Instagram application, picking the gear symbol as well as picking "Share Settings" presents a checklist of accounts with which you could share. Tapping "Twitter" and after that confirming your choice enables you to share with Twitter. Even if you have actually previously done this, the alternative to toggle the link on or off may not constantly show up in the Settings application. You could settle that problem by touching "Twitter" from the Instagram app's Share Settings, picking "Unlink" then reconnecting the accounts. Once linked, pick "Twitter" from iPhone's Settings app to discover the slider that toggles the link.

Even more suggestions ...

Once upon a time, it was simple to share your Instagram pictures via Twitter. However these days, sharing your Instagram images directly to Twitter just tweets out an uninteresting old web link, not that fav-worthy picture you just took.

No concerns-- there's a very easy repair.

IFTTT, short for "If This Then That" is a program that lets you create "triggers" for your numerous applications. IFTTT has lots of terrific applications, but among them is sharing Instagram images natively on Twitter once more.

To do so, you could develop a recipe-- IFTTT's name for its triggers-- for uploading a photo to Twitter whenever you take a picture with Instagram.

Initially, go to IFTTT's web site and also create an account. After that, visit this link and also activate the recipe. You'll then be asked to trigger your Twitter and also Instagram accounts, which you need to go on as well as do. After that, the service will essentially connect those 2 accounts, sending a tweet each time you post a brand-new picture to Instagram.

A few caveats: This configuration can be a little slow-moving, so worry not if your photos don't appear on Twitter promptly after you publish them on Instagram. As well as if you wish to briefly shut off the auto-posting, download and install IFTTT's mobile application, which allows you turn dishes on and off on an impulse.
