Cross-posting content on social media is all the rage these days because each platform has its own unique flavor and feel as far as the audience is concerned. While most people are already present on multiple platforms, the kind of messaging used on one social site might not suit another. However, the contrary is also true, i.e. what goes viral on one platform may do equally well on another. This article will show you how to post a Twitter video on Instagram.
Part 1: How to Share a Twitter Video on Instagram
Although Twitter now has a feature allowing you to share Tweets as stickers on Instagram Stories (see next section), this facility is not available for videos specifically. For that reason, you'll need to use a workaround. Of course, you can paste a link to the Twitter video in your IG Stories but it's not really the same thing - that will take them to Twitter instead. What you want is the actual video from Twitter to be playable on your Stories channel on Instagram. The steps for this are shown below:
Step 1. Go to Twitter and copy the URL of the video by right-clicking the video and selecting Copy Video Address.
Step 2. Download the Twitter video using an online Twitter video downloading service like TwitterVideo Downloader. Visit the downloader site and paste this URL there. Click Download.
Step 3. Choose your format as MP4. Click Download to save the video to your device.
Step 4. Once you have downloaded the video, you can immediately upload it to Instagram Stories.
If you are going to do this on a regular basis from one particular Twitter account, then it's better to set up a regular posting schedule and automate it with the help of an app like OneUpApp. It allows you to input an RSS feed and then automatically post any content that comes into the feed on your Instagram Stories channel. However, it's a little risky to do this with someone else's Twitter handle because you can't review what's shared, so it could lead to potential copyright violations and other issues. But if it's your own Twitter account, this is a great way to set it up.
Step 1. Go to the rss.app website and create a free account.
Step 2. Create an RSS feed for the Twitter handle in question.
Step 3. Create an account in OneUpApp and input the URL of the Twitter RSS feed.
Step 4. Go to the Dashboard of OneUpApp and click the button called Schedule Post. Then select the option called "Auto-post from RSS feeds."
Step 5. Assign a category to the task and link your Instagram account. Choose the posting schedule and hit the Add button.
Setting it up this way will automatically take everything from the Twitter feed and post it to your Stories section on Instagram. But, again, be careful how you use this method.
Part 2. How To Share Tweet From Twitter To Instagram
As we mentioned, sharing a Tweet is much easier because Twitter already has a feature for this. Here's what you need to do:
Step 1. In Twitter, tap or click the Share icon to share the Tweet.
Step 2. Tap the Instagram Stories menu item underneath it.
Step 3. This will trigger your Instagram app and create a new Story draft. The Tweet will appear as a sticker that you can resize or reposition. Choose the share settings and hit Post.
This method is obviously easier because it allows you to share any type of Tweet, including images, videos, and so on. But if you only want the content, one of the previous methods is better. Additionally, if you download a video from Twitter before reposting it on Instagram, you can edit it to make it even better. That's what the following section is all about.
