Twitter users can now share a tweet directly to an Instagram story from their iOS device.
Twitter users now have the ability to share Tweets directly to an Instagram Story from their iPhone. First introduced in 2016, Instagram Stories provide a Snapchat-like ability to share photos or videos that last for 15 seconds and then disappear after twenty-four hours.
While users could previously share a Tweet to other social media apps including Facebook or Tumblr on an iPhone, Instagram Stories was not an option. Another Instagram Stories-related limitation is also set to be fixed soon thanks to the upcoming option to save a Story as a draft, a feature previously limited to Feed posts and Reels.
Twitter Blue subscription tier.
Besides the ability to share Tweets directly, Twitter recently unveiled Super Follows and Ticketed Spaces, two new features that offer users exclusive content from their favourite creators for a fee.
Twitter also rolled out its Twitter Blue subscription tier with an Undo Tweet feature earlier this month. Twitter Blue is currently available to Canadian users for $3.49 CAD or Australian users for $4.49 AUD.
How does it work?
Revealed by the official Twitter account, iOS users can now share a Tweet to an Instagram story right from the Twitter app.
Before the update, users only had the option of taking a screenshot of a Tweet when sharing an Instagram Story. Not only was this method less convenient, but it also took up storage space on the device’s camera roll. Before attempting to share a Tweet to Instagram Stories, users will want to make sure they have the Instagram app downloaded on their device and that the Twitter iOS app is updated to the most recent version.
