How To Post Instagram Photos On Twitter After They Disconnect

Instagram is telling Twitter to take a hike and soon you won’t be able to seamlessly post Instagram’s pics directly to Twitter anymore.

But you will still be able to post them to Twitter if you use one of these workarounds.

The New York Times shared an interesting post on how to bypass Instagrams’s Twitter barrier – and we’re going to excerpt and add to it here.

First up – using your phone’s camera roll: “To tweet, go to the Camera Roll on your phone, and you will see the Instagram photo. If you select the image, you can now share it on Twitter. For iOS users, the best way to do this is to hit the arrow in the bottom left corner of the screen and then select Twitter. This will automatically embed the picture in your messages.”

And if you share your public Facebook posts directly with Twitter – your Instagram pics will post to Twitter too!

The same thing goes for Tumblr, Flickr and Foursquare. You can share to each platform and as long as you have each set to post to Twitter, it will reshare the photo there as well.

Will you still post Instagram pics on Twitter using any of these methods – or will it be too much trouble to bother?
