Share Instagram Post Previews on Other Websites
Image Previews in Twitter
First of all, you should check the requirements for seeing an Instagram post preview on Twitter. For this, the Instagram account needs to be public. Now follow the steps mentioned below:
- Go to Twitter and write a Tweet in which you want to include the Instagram post.
- Now go to Instagram and copy that post’s link that you want to share.
- After that, paste this Instagram post link in the tweet.
That’s all. Now, when you send the tweet, you will see an image preview as a card with a thumbnail in the Tweet.
Moreover, if you share to Twitter directly from Instagram, that post’s caption will also appear alongside the image preview. When someone clicks the link on the preview on your tweet, it will bring them directly to your Instagram post.
You should note that apart from Instagram stories, all types of posts including photos, videos, and Reels will preview on Twitter.
Embed Instagram Profile on Website
Apart from image previews on Twitter, Instagram users can now also embed their profile on a website and it will show a preview of your profile with up to six of your most recent posts. This will surely attract the website audience to visit your profile.
Here’s how to embed your Instagram profile on any website:
Go to the Instagram profile that you want to share on a website.
If you visit the Instagram web, click on the gear icon on the profile page. On the mobile app, click the three dots.
Now, from the options, select “embed,” and then “copy embed code.”
After that, paste this embed code into your website.
Moreover, you can also control who can embed your Instagram profile code on websites outside of Instagram. This new control for embeds is available in Instagram settings.
This feature is available in the United States as of now. But Instagram will soon expand it to more countries.
