You can now share tweets to Snapchat; Instagram coming soon

The pandemic saw many social media platforms, especially Twitter, grow at a scale never seen before. Twitter’s dominance as a social media platform is strongly rising, even against giants like Facebook and Facebook’s Instagram, party even due to the U.S. 2020 Presidential Elections. Now, Twitter is making it easier to cross-share tweets across other social media apps, including Snapchat and Instagram.

Announced today, Twitter users can now share tweets that they see directly from the Twitter App on iOS to their Snapchat stories. Previously, users would have had to take a screenshot of a tweet, crop it, and then share it on their Snap stories. The native Snapchat share integration makes it possible for tweets to appear as stickers in Snap stories, alongside other content as well.

This feature allows you to access all of Snapchat’s editing features, or the Snap camera. Users that see your Snap story with a tweet sticker can swipe up to view the tweet. The new user interface for tweets within Snapchat looks much better than a screenshot, with a larger Twitter logo, rounded corners, and clear source mentions.

Though the feature is only available for iOS right now, it will be rolling out to Android soon.

Twitter is also testing sharing of tweets to Instagram stories with a small group of users. It is expected that this feature will also eventually make public release, allowing for tweets to feel more natural in other social media apps. Instagram is already quite popular for sharing screenshots of tweets in posts or stories, with entire accounts dedicated to reposting tweets.

Soon, Twitter will be testing sharing to Instagram Stories as well. | Image: Twitter
