Photo sharing app owned by Meta Instagram is reintroducing Twitter card previews on its platform. From now on users will get a preview when someone shares Instagram links on the microblogging site. Earlier when Instagram links were shared it only showed a URL but now a small preview of the link including an image will let them know what the shared link is about even before opening it.
While introducing the new preview feature Instagram said, “They said it would never happen… Twitter Card previews start rolling out TODAY. Now, when you share an Instagram link on Twitter a preview of that post will appear.”
Instagram has added Twitter Card Previews on its platform. Thanks to the new features a preview will appear, the users will now be able to view Instagram posts without having to open the link. The feature is now available on Android, iOS and web platforms. Previously this feature was removed from the platform and when someone shared their Instagram post on Twitter it only showed the URL in their tweets.
While Twitter in its tweet said, “If you want to share your latest Instagram post on the Twitter timeline too, you’re in luck: now when you share a link to an IG post in a Tweet, it’ll show up as a card with a preview of the photo. Rolling out on Android, iOS, and web.”
Besides this Twitter has also introduced a new feature for the iOS platform letting them search via the tweets of specific profiles. A new search button now appears on specific profiles allowing them to search only for tweets from an individual account. The feature was first introduced by XDA Developers. According to its report, Twitter will now show a new Search button on the Twitter profile of iOS users. The publisher has also shared screenshots that show the new search button placed on the top right corner of the user’s profile.
On Clicking on the new Search @Username’s Tweets button one can easily look for specific tweets. A screen similar to the existing search functionality appears when you press enter.
