Creating the Connection

Opening your profile in the Instagram application, picking the gear icon and also selecting "Share Settings" presents a checklist of accounts with which you could share. Touching "Twitter" then verifying your choice enables you to show 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 resolve that issue by touching "Twitter" from the Instagram application's Share Settings, choosing "Unlink" and then reconnecting the accounts. Once connected, select "Twitter" from iPhone's Settings application to find the slider that toggles the link.

Even more tips ...

In the past, it was easy to share your Instagram pictures by means of Twitter. However these days, sharing your Instagram pictures directly to Twitter just tweets out a monotonous old web link, not that fav-worthy picture you simply took.

No fears-- there's a simple repair.

IFTTT, short for "If This Then That" is a program that lets you create "triggers" for your different apps. IFTTT has great deals of fantastic applications, yet among them is sharing Instagram pictures natively on Twitter again.

To do so, you can produce a dish-- IFTTT's name for its triggers-- for posting an image to Twitter whenever you take an image with Instagram.

Initially, go to IFTTT's site as well as produce an account. Then, visit this link and trigger the dish. You'll after that be asked to trigger your Twitter and also Instagram accounts, which you should go on as well as do. Then, the service will basically link those two accounts, sending a tweet whenever you upload a new photo to Instagram.

A couple of caveats: This configuration can be a little slow, so worry not if your pictures don't turn up on Twitter promptly after you upload them on Instagram. And if you want to temporarily turn off the auto-posting, download IFTTT's mobile app, which lets you transform recipes on and off on an impulse.
