Instagram Re-adding Support to Show Post Preview in Twitter Card

On Wednesday, 3rd November, Instagram announced its long-awaited feature to re-adding the support to show posts in Twitter Card Previews.

Previously, while posting an Instagram link on Twitter, it would only show a URL of the Instagram post link but starting today, when users share a link of an Instagram post on Twitter, they will see a preview of the post in a rectangle Twitter Card.

This feature is one of the most long-awaited features demanded from many users to add support to show Instagram post preview in a tweet as a Twitter Card. Interestingly, this is not a new feature, in 2012, the most popular photo and video sharing platform decided to remove this functionality in order to drive more audience to Instagram itself.

But now, after a very long time of nine years, the company brings back the ability and said: “Now, when you share an Instagram link on Twitter, a preview of that post will appear.

Twitter Support also acknowledging this feature by saying a tweet that “If you want to share your latest Instagram post on the Twitter timeline too, you’re in luck: now when you share a link to an IG post in a Tweet, it’ll show up as a card with a preview of the photo.
