How Twitter Users Share Their Tweets to Instagram as Stories in iOS
Twitter users who owns an iOS smartphone will not have a hard time to share their tweets to Instagram as the social media platform can now share tweets to the photo-sharing social networking site's Stories. According to Slash Gear, this move will curb the use of screenshots to share tweets.
This is part of the social media app's update in the Apple Smartphones along with a beta test for Twitter's Stickers feature, where users can share a tweet as a sticker in Instagram.
According to LifeHacker.com, the feature itself follows a similar one introduced by Snapchat for their iOS version of that app late last year, where users can post a tweet into a Snap as a sticker, then post a link that will take it back to the original Twitter post.
How Will This Feature Work
According to The Verge, the said feature will share using iOS' share sheet - by just tapping the share icon underneath a tweet, then select "Instagram Stories." Once shared in Instagram Stories, the tweet itself can be resized, re-positioned, and decorated with texts and stickers.
For now, this feature, which made the process of sharing contents from Twitter to Instagram a lot easier, will work better with text-based and image-based tweets. According to Tech Times, the new said feature itself will also generate smoother results.
However, the likes, comments, retweets, and quote retweets of a tweet that was shared on Instagram using this feature will not be affected. This means that despite of how many people will like a tweet that was shared in Instagram, the engagements will not reflect to those that are on the original post.
How Will You Share Your Tweets to Instagram
As mentioned, the new feature in the iOS version of Twitter in sharing tweets to Instagram will eliminate the need of screengrabbing a tweet to share it on the social media app's Stories.
AdWeek.com shared the steps on how you can do it on your Apple Smartphones.
In order to share your tweets from Twitter to Instagram, first you tap the "Share" button under the tweet that you want to share. Under the share tweet, you will see multiple social media platforms that you can share the tweet to. From there, click the "Instagram Stories."
After this step, your device might ask you if you want to allow Twitter to open the Instagram app. If this happens, you can tap the "Open" option on the permissions window.
Once it is done, the Instagram app will open and it will go straight towards the interface of the Instagram Stories. There, you will see the tweet that you want to share there. You can also edit and customize the post with text, stickers and more before tapping the "Your Story" on your bottom left.
