Even more tips ...

Once upon a time, it was very easy to share your Instagram images through Twitter. Yet these days, sharing your Instagram images directly to Twitter simply tweets out a boring old web link, not that fav-worthy photo you just took.

No fears-- there's an easy solution.

IFTTT, brief for "If This Then That" is a program that allows you develop "triggers" for your numerous apps. IFTTT has lots of excellent applications, yet among them is sharing Instagram pictures natively on Twitter once more.

To do so, you could develop a dish-- IFTTT's name for its triggers-- for uploading a picture to Twitter every single time you take a photo with Instagram.

First, browse through IFTTT's web site and also create an account. Then, visit this link as well as trigger the dish. You'll then be asked to activate your Twitter and Instagram accounts, which you should go on as well as do. Then, the service will basically connect those two accounts, sending out a tweet whenever you publish a brand-new image to Instagram.

A couple of cautions: This configuration can be a little slow-moving, so fret not if your photos don't turn up on Twitter immediately after you post them on Instagram. And also if you want to briefly switch off the auto-posting, download IFTTT's mobile application, which lets you transform dishes on and off on a whim.
