The days of expanding Instagram photos in your Twitter timeline are now over. (OK, maybe that was a little bit dramatic.) Or, at least they are for the time being. (Better?)
Here’s more on this from a Twitter blog post:
As a result, photos are no longer appearing in Tweets or user photo galleries. While tweeting links to Instagram photos is still possible, you can no longer view the photos on Twitter, as was previously the case.
When you share an Instagram photo on Twitter it will now only appear as a link, taking you back to the photo-filtering site/app.
If you miss this feature on Twitter, you’re in luck. There seems to be a quick solution.
If you sign up for an account on IFTTT, you can create a hashtag that will allow you to post the full photo on Twitter. Just be sure to use the hashtag you created in the cutline of the photo on Instagram. It’s probably not the best solution, but it works.
Thanks to IFTTT user djbentley for coming up with this fix!
