How to post from Instagram to Twitter as Images not Link

Have you ever been frustrated seeing that when you choose to share your post from Instagram to Twitter when both are linked, it only posts a link there?


You can now heave a sigh of relief I promise you, with this strategy I want to share with you. You don’t even need to click the Twitter icon when you want to post on Instagram anymore.


Let’s see an example. This was posted on Instagram :


And then it was automatically shared on Twitter like this:

How on God’s earth did this happen?

Have you ever heard of this awesome FREE tool that does many online wonders –IFTTT ? IFTTT means If This Then That. It basically makes use of recipes which people have prepared to simplify online tasks. Now, this is not an IFTTT lecture (I’m sorry). Now, cutting to the chase, there are three recipes I have handpicked for your trial and use.

3 IFTTT Recipes that can help you share your Instagram photos as images on Twitter automatically:

1. Share your Instagram pics as native Twitter photos.

You can use this if you want all your Instagram photos to automatically go to your connected Twitter channel.

2. Post your Instagram photos as native Twitter photos when #Twitter is in the caption.

There might be some people that have various audiences on their different platforms. This is for the brand that is picky about what it can share on Twitter. So use this if you don’t want all your Instagram photos to automatically get posted on Twitter. Just tag your Instagram photo with #twitter (or a tag of your choice which you can specify on setup) and it will post to Twitter as native image with card.

3. Post your Instagram pics on Twitter as a picture(not a link)

You will find a lot of options on IFTTT that can achieve the same result, and reason is there are a lot of recipe creators on the platform. So, if you don’t have the magnanimity of time to check all around, stick to just one out of the 3 suggested above.

Finally, remember that you don’t need to click on the Twitter icon anymore whenever you want to share your post from lnstagram.
