iOS Twitter Users Can Now Directly Share Tweets on Instagram Stories


An ecosystem between devices is one of the most admired things in tech. This is mostly because of the efficiency it brings when you can easily carry on tasks from one device to another. But one between apps can certainly make life even easier and it looks like Twitter and Instagram are creating one. The microblogging site announced the rollout of a feature that will now let users share tweets on Instagram Stories directly from the share menu. The only catch is that this is happening first for iOS users only.

This feature comes a few months after Twitter started testing it among a select number of iOS users late last year. But before then, users were only allowed to share tweets on Instagram or any other social media platform by taking screenshots.

To share your favourite tweets on Instagram Stories, all you have to do is :

  1. Open up Twitter for iOS app. Tap the share icon on a public Tweet.
    Note: A protected Tweet cannot be shared.
    Tap the Instagram icon. 

      2. Your Twitter for iOS app will close, and a new Story draft on your Instagram app will open. 

     3. The tweet you want to share will appear as a moveable and resizable sticker to share on Instagram Stories. You can share the Tweet with a single person, a group, or all of your followers.

However, you should know that tweets being shared on Instagram Stories currently do not allow users to ap in order to view them separately. That is certainly a feature that would make it even cooler as we get when Instagram posts are shared on Stories.
