Instagram Now Lets You @Mention Twitter Friends Seamlessly

Instagram is great. Im sure you agree with us right?
What they just did to the app is seriously amazing.

They’ve just rolled out a change that will make sharing to Twitter more seamless.


For photos shared to Twitter, Instagram now translates @mentions for users whose Twitter username and Instagram username differ.

If the @mentioned user has connected Instagram to Twitter:

The user’s Instagram username will appear in the photo caption
The user’s Twitter username will appear in the tweet

If the @mentioned user has not connected Instagram to Twitter:

The user’s Instagram username will appear in the photo caption
The @ sign will be removed from the username when shared to Twitter

For @mentions that do not match any Instagram usernames, the @ sign will remain when shared to Twitter.
