Setting up two triggers is called a recipe and the variations must number in the millions. For example: Ive set a recipe that when I take an Instagram photo it saves it to a specific folder in Dropbox helps to keep my Instagram pics in one place and I can access them quickly from my computer. So back to our Instagram/Twitter inline image preview problem. Its really simple to create a new recipe on IFTTT which allows you, when youve taken a photo in Instagram, to post it to Twitter through Twitters own image service. This then allows everyone on Twitter who uses Twitters native apps to see your photo inline, instead of having to open Instagram in your browser. Perhaps insignificant, but it makes a difference. Heres how: Lets make a new recipe Next you simply select Instagram as trigger and select Any new photo by you the this trigger in the recipe Once youve done that you can then select Twitter and click on Post a tweet with image the that trigger in the recipe Make sure you click Create recipe and thats it. Next time you share a photo through Instagram it will automatically send it to Twitter as a Tweet with an image through pic.twitter.com Everyone using Twitter native apps like Twitter.com, Tweetdeck, Twitter for iPhone/Android etc will be able to see it as inline image. Heres a photo I posted through Instagram viewed in Tweetdeck Ned’s got new wheels. V and I approve pic.twitter.com/YnO74Mf5dK and lucky (@PluckyLuke) June 22, 2014 Hope you find this useful.
