Twitter is making it easier for iOS users to share tweets directly to Instagram Stories. Instead of having to screenshot a tweet and upload it on Instagram, Twitter now supports a direct “Instagram Stories” option when sharing a tweet.
The official Twitter Support account has announced that the social media platform is making it easier for users to share tweets to Instagram Stories. This new feature will only be accessible to iOS users for the time being. When navigating to the ‘Share’ button on a tweet, a new option to share directly to “Instagram Stories” will appear.
This will then redirect users to the Instagram app and into the Stories’ edit function. Users can then resize the tweet, add any text, gifs, and hashtags they see fit. They can then share it on Instagram.
Skip the screenshots –– sharing Tweets to Instagram Stories right from the share menu is now rolling out to everyone on iOS!
Tap the share icon on a Tweet and select “Instagram Stories”. Once your Instagram app opens, you can resize/reposition the Tweet sticker before posting. https://t.co/R1qayqMwYl pic.twitter.com/yp82IH5Tuk

As Twitter Support notes, testing for this feature first began on iOS back in December 2020. Select iOS users were given the ability to share tweets as a sticker to Instagram. It now appears as though testing went over smoothly. The feature is now accessible once the latest Twitter software update is installed on your iPhone.
Currently, there is no word on when this function will be available on Android.
