Twitter announces integration with Snapchat, to allow sharing tweets

Topics Twitter | Snapchat

Twitter has made it possible for its users to now share their tweets directly on Snapchat. Till date, one had to take a screenshot of the tweet and then share that on the photo-sharing platform Snapchat.

Currently available for iOS users, press the share button on a public tweet (private tweets aren't supported) and select the Snapchat icon from the share carousel, reports The Verge.

The users can then create a snap of the tweet and share it with people, or add it to their stories on Snapchat.

"Twitter also says that a small group of iOS users will be able to test sharing tweets to Instagram Stories soon"., the report said on Thursday.

The feature will be rolled out to Android users later, according to the report.

Earlier this month, Twitter turned off its threaded replies experiment as it made conversations hard to read and shut down its beta app called twttr, designed for experiments like threaded replies.


The threaded replies experiment was meant to make replies easier to read and follow but users gave negative feedback.

The microblogging platform is now exploring the next steps for the app as it develops future plans to test new products.
