How to Embed Instagram Photos On Twitter

For whatever reason, social media properties don't always like to play along. While it's relatively easy to connect Facebook with Twitter and Pinterest with Facebook, Instagram - the popular photo-sharing service - doesn't easily connect with Twitter. But all is not lost! Read on to find out how you can embed your Instagram photos on Twitter.
What's IFTTT? It's an app, which stands for "If Not This, Then That" that allows users to connect all of the social media properties you use on the internet through "recipes" created by aficionados. One IFTTT user called djuiceman created a recipe that allows you to post your Instagram photos directly onto Twitter. Download the app, sign up for the service, go to the recipe and click on "Use Recipe."

If you haven't activated your Twitter or Instagram channels before, the service will go through that process for you now. Once you're all set, anytime you take a photo on Instagram it will immediately post that photo, with filter and caption, to your Twitter account.

It's that easy! Thanks to the know-how of the Internet and the social media community, there are all sorts of work-arounds like this out there when rival companies refuse to play nice. You just have to find them, and we'll be sure to keep our eyes peeled for you.
