The preview of the Instagram posts is once again available for Twitter users. G.Thanks to this novelty, therefore, it will be possible to easily share any Instagram post within a tweet.

Instagram reports previews of posts in Twitter
The preview of the post therefore makes its return after several years. The decision to block the preview of Instagram posts on Twitter dates back to about 9 years ago, immediately after the acquisition by Facebook. Initially, Instagram’s goal was to prevent posts from being viewed on other social networks or platforms as well. In fact, Instagram wanted to protect its posts and growth.
In recent years, of course, the world of social media has profoundly changed and even Instagram has recorded many new features. The return of the preview appears, therefore, as a necessary choice to keep up with the times. The “new” functionality is being released and will be available to all users over the next few hours. The preview will be visible both via the web and via Twitter’s Android and iOS apps. We will see if further integrations between the two social networks will arrive in the future.
