How do Instagram Previews on Twitter work
In order to see a preview of an Instagram post on Twitter, the Instagram account needs to be public, whether it is your own or someone else's. If you write a tweet and include a link to a public Instagram post, an image preview will be shown as a Twitter Card with a thumbnail in the tweet. If you choose to share to Twitter from Instagram, the caption from the post will appear in addition to the image preview.
Also, clicking the link of the preview on Twitter will bring you directly to the post on Instagram. All types of feed posts, like photos, videos, carousels and reels, will preview when shared to Twitter. Stories will not show up as previews on Twitter for now.
More ways to discover your Instagram content
In addition to sharing previews on Twitter, you can also embed your Instagram profile on a website. The application has enabled posts from public accounts to be embedded on external websites in the past—now, you can share previews of your profile and up to six of your most recent images to encourage people to view more. It can be noted that this will be first available in the United States, and then can be expanded to more countries soon.
How to embed an Instagram profile on web:
1. Go to the profile you want to share.
2. If it is your profile, click the gear icon. If it is another profile, click the three dots (•••).
3. Click “embed,” then “copy embed code.”
4. Copy and paste the code into your website to display a profile preview.
Instagram users can choose whether your public posts or profile can be embedded on websites outside of Instagram using a new control for embeds, available in settings. This setting will also only be available to people in the United States to start.
