Placing an Instagram link in your Twitter bio is a strategy that can significantly boost your audience and extend your reach. It’s also one of the easiest ways to do this.
Let’s not waste any more time, though. Here’s how to put an Instagram link into a Twitter bio:
- Log in to your Twitter account and click on Profile
- Click on Edit profile
- Edit your bio
It’s quite simple, really. You just open your profile, select “Edit profile“, go to the Bio field, and paste the link. Then, you save the changes.
But, just in case, follow my guide below as I’ve included step-by-step instructions and pictures for an easier experience!
1. Log in to your Twitter account and click on “Profile“
First, you’ll have to copy your Instagram profile link but we won’t get into that here.
After you do that, open Twitter and select the “Profile” button on the left-hand side menu.
2. Select “Edit profile“
Once your Twitter profile is opened, locate the “Edit profile” button (to the right of your profile picture) and select it.
3. Put your Instagram profile link in the Bio
On the editing screen, you’ll see multiple fields but the ones you should focus on are the “Bio” and “Website” ones.
Place your IG link in both of those fields and save your settings!
Done. You’ve just learned how to promote your Instagram on Twitter! Leave a comment below if you need any more help with something.
Why does it matter if you put your Instagram link in the Twitter bio?
You can garner more attention for your other websites or social media accounts.
If you’re an influencer on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter profiles, you will want to promote them.
Not all your accounts are as popular or have an equal follower base.
If your Twitter account is the biggest of them all, you can promote your Facebook and Instagram accounts on Twitter.
That way, your Twitter followers may also become your Facebook and Instagram followers.
Adding your Instagram link to your Twitter bio makes even more sense if you represent a brand or sell products.
You’re reaching a wider audience base, which increases your chances of selling the services/products you represent.
How do you get your Instagram account URL?
You can get your Instagram URL in one of two ways.
Either you add your username to the end of the Instagram URL.
Like this – https://www.instagram.com/username.
So, if your username is 123kyle123, your Instagram profile URL would be https://www.instagram.com/123kyle123.
You can also get your Instagram profile link by using the Instagram website.
On a desktop, you need to go to your Profile first. It’s in the top-right corner (profile picture).
Click on it and then copy your URL. It already has your profile included.
Lastly, you can use the mobile app to Profile – Menu – QR Code – Share – Copy.
Now you’ve copied your Instagram Link to your clipboard.
Go to your Twitter Bio and paste it there!
How do I get rid of link previews on Twitter?
It would help if you had the Android or iOS Twitter app for this to work.
Go to Settings and look for the Image Previews option. Remove the checkmark on your Android or toggle the button to the Off position on your iOS.
But you can’t do this on the web version of Twitter.
Link previews are ugly and irrelevant no matter where you post them.
It’s only normal to want to get rid of them. You can do it easily on the Twitter app “Add Image”.
