How to Connect Instagram to Twitter

How To Connect Instagram To Twitter: Connecting your Instagram account with Twitter enables you to share your Instagram pictures directly through your Twitter account. Sadly, this option is only readily available for your iOS 7 device, so if you're making use of Android, you're out of luck. You can manually sever or reconnect the accounts with your Settings application, however this hassle-free control only shows up after you first link both accounts with the Instagram app.

How To Connect Instagram To Twitter

Creating the Link

Opening your profile in the Instagram application, selecting the gear symbol and also selecting "Share Settings" presents a list of accounts with which you can share. Touching "Twitter" then verifying your choice allows you to show to Twitter. Even if you've formerly done this, the choice to toggle the connection on or off may not always show up in the Settings app. You could fix that problem by touching "Twitter" from the Instagram application's Share Settings, selecting "Unlink" and afterwards reconnecting the accounts. Once linked, select "Twitter" from iPhone's Settings application to locate the slider that toggles the link.

Even more suggestions ...

Once upon a time, it was very easy to share your Instagram pictures via Twitter. But these days, sharing your Instagram images directly to Twitter simply tweets out a boring old link, not that fav-worthy photo you just took.

No fears-- there's a very easy solution.

IFTTT, short for "If This Then That" is a program that lets you develop "triggers" for your various applications. IFTTT has great deals of terrific applications, but one of them is sharing Instagram images natively on Twitter again.

To do so, you can create a recipe-- IFTTT's name for its triggers-- for posting a picture to Twitter every single time you take a picture with Instagram.

Initially, check out IFTTT's website and create an account. After that, visit this link as well as trigger the dish. You'll after that be asked to activate your Twitter as well as Instagram accounts, which you must proceed as well as do. After that, the service will basically connect those 2 accounts, sending a tweet every time you publish a new image to Instagram.

A couple of caveats: This arrangement can be a little slow-moving, so stress not if your pictures don't show up on Twitter immediately after you upload them on Instagram. And also if you want to briefly shut off the auto-posting, download IFTTT's mobile app, which lets you turn dishes on and off on an impulse.
