More pointers ...

In the past, it was easy to share your Instagram images through Twitter. But these days, sharing your Instagram photos straight to Twitter just tweets out a monotonous old link, not that fav-worthy photo you just took.

No worries-- there's a simple solution.

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

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

Initially, browse through IFTTT's internet site and create an account. Then, visit this link and trigger the recipe. You'll then be asked to activate your Twitter as well as Instagram accounts, which you need to go on and also do. After that, the solution will basically link those 2 accounts, sending out a tweet every time you publish a new photo to Instagram.

A few caveats: This setup can be a little sluggish, so stress not if your pictures do not show up on Twitter quickly after you upload them on Instagram. And if you intend to briefly turn off the auto-posting, download and install IFTTT's mobile application, which lets you turn recipes on and off on an impulse.
