Twitter used to allow you to share photos to it directly from Instagram but I guess they’re not friends anymore. In this guide I’m going to show you how you can still do it with a free service called ‘If This Then That’.

Let’s face it, if you’re a musician like me, you’re writing, you’re recording, you might be making videos as well as supposedly being everywhere on social media. Well, there are tools out there than can help lessen the load.

I tend to use Instagram as my main hub nowadays and like to share photos from it to Twitter. That doesn’t mean I’m not active on twitter, it just means I want people to see my stuff there too (I’m that vain).

So when Twitter decided that Instagram would no longer be able to natively share photos natively to its service, it really annoyed me. All you’re able to do is just share a link to the Instagram photo, which just gets lost in the feed. So, I started using a service called ‘If This Then That‘ which can do it natively.

It basically works by having you add different services such as Twitter and Instagram and allowing you to create ‘Applets’ which automate a string of processes. For example, If you post a photo on Instagram Then post a tweet with the photo. Watch the video above to see how it all works.

As always thanks for reading and let me know your thoughts on this!
