Twitter announced on Thursday that it has added support for sharing tweets directly to Instagram Stories and Snapchat. The ability to quickly “post” a tweet to Instagram was first introduced on iOS last year. Twitter users on Android can directly select a tweet to share their stories on the popular photo and video sharing service without taking a screenshot, which could help reduce the clutter on their smartphones. The microblogging service on Thursday also announced support for LinkedIn sharing on both Android and iOS.
On Thursday, Twitter announced that users on Android can now share tweets directly to Instagram and Snapchat. Users who have updated to the latest version can click the Share button, then tap the Instagram icon to share a tweet on their Instagram Stories.

After sharing a Tweet on Instagram, users can move, rotate, or resize the Tweet to improve the visibility of certain content. They can then share it as a story, or send it to individual users or a group.
However, as on iOS, neither the person sharing the Tweet on their Instagram Stories nor the people viewing it will be able to tap it or interact with it in any way. This means users will not be able to see a reply to the tweet unless the person sharing the tweet has also shared a link on their Instagram Stories.
Just as Twitter doesn’t allow users to retweet any Tweet posted by a protected account, the feature allows users to share protected Tweets on Instagram Stories or Snapchat to protect users’ privacy on the microblogging service. will not allow.
It’s worth noting that the ability to share tweets on Instagram on Android comes a year after Twitter for iOS was introduced. Users have been able to post tweets on their Instagram Stories from their timeline from June 2021.
