In days past, if you wanted to share a tweet to Snapchat, you needed to screenshot it and then share your screenshot.
But now, there’s a better, more integrated option: iOS users can share tweets to Snapchat directly with a few taps, allowing their followers to navigate to the tweet and see the replies (or share it themselves).
Here’s how iOS users can get started sharing tweets to Snapchat.
How to add a tweet to Snapchat
1. Open Twitter and navigate to the tweet you want to share. The tweet must be from an account that’s public – if the tweeter’s username has a lock icon next to it, the tweet can’t be shared.
2. Tap the tweet’s sharing icon, which looks like an arrow pointing upwards out of a box. It’ll be in the bottom-right corner of the tweet.
3. You’ll see “Snap Camera” as a share option. Tap it. If you don’t see this option, it means that either Twitter or Snapchat needs to be updated, or you don’t have Snapchat installed and set up.
4. Snapchat will open, with your tweet inserted on the screen. Don’t worry about the placement of the tweet – you can adjust this after you’ve recorded the snap.
5. Take your snap – it can be a picture or video. Add any text, effects, or filters you’d like, and then move the tweet to where you want it. You can also rotate and resize it freely.
6. Tap the send button in the bottom-right corner of the screen and select your recipients, then tap the blue arrow in the bottom-right to send it.
To open the tweet you sent so they can see the replies or share it, your recipient will need to swipe up on your snap.
