The Tale of Two Images

The Tale Of Two Images - Get your Instagram images seen on Twitter! | Sarah Celebrates

Hello there =)

Think about your favorite social media site.  Go ahead, I’ll even let you pick two.

[insert Jeopardy music]

Pinterest and Instagram?  Was I right?  If I wasn’t spot on I know I had to be pretty close.  How did I know?

People prefer images to text.  Images quickly convey a message.  They create and encourage emotion.  They help connect readers, followers and even friends to you at a deeper, more emotional level.

So with that said, why are you still using the ‘Share on Twitter’ button when you post on Instagram?

The Tale of Two Images

Let’s look at a recent Instagram Fortune Cookie Friday picture I shared where I used the ‘Share on Twitter’ button.

Now you see it, now you don’t!

How often have you seen the image on the right?  The tweet with a link to Instagram?  Have you ever clicked it?  I’ll be honest, I haven’t and probably never will.

What if your Twitter followers don’t have or want to have Instagram?  They are missing your pictures!  We need to fix this STAT!

Don’t worry, there’s a Recipe for that!

Tale of Two Images - IFTTT Recipe Instagram to Native Twitter Pic | Sarah Celebrates

 Isn’t that better?  That’s awesome Sarah!  But how did you do that?  Simple my dear =)

Have you ever noticed the #hi on some of my Instagram posts?  That hashtag paired with a Recipe in my IFTTT account posts my Instagram images to Twitter as a native Twitter pic.  IE, as if I posted the picture on Twitter directly.

By using #hi, my Twitter followers get my full Instagram image without having to leave Twitter & the 1st 140 characters of my Instagram post (less the #hi).  Pretty spiffy don’t you think?

Do you have an IFTTT account?

Add this recipe to your list!

Want another fun one?  My non-Instagram Facebook friends don’t have to miss out on my Friday cookie papers.  I have a Recipe for that too!

Any image tagged #fortunecookiefriday on Instagram pops into a photo album of my choosing on my Sarah Celebrates Facebook page.  No double posting for me!

So have you created an IFTTT account yet?
