Make your Instagram Photos show up in your Twitter Timeline.

PICS not Links
Do you remember a time when you posted to Instagram, cross-posted to Twitter and your photo displayed in all its glory?

This is an Instagram post shared to Twitter from the Instagram share to Twitter setting

 

This is an Instagram post shared using the technique outlined in this HowTo worksheet.

Here is the How To... post photos from Instagram into Twitter and have the picture display instead of a link.

It uses a service called IFTTT (If This Then That) it has a multitude of uses supporting more services than you ever knew existed!

IF I post THIS on Instagram  THEN post THAT to Twitter

I hope that sounds logical. IFTTT is all about logic statements which trigger actions.

In a nutshell... 

The Steps.

  • Create an IFTTT account.
  • Locate a predefined 'recipe' (the name given to instructions constructed in IFTTT)
  • Activate the Instagram instruction to ‘run’ the action each time you post a photo.
