Where you can get your Twitter URL

Let’s start from where you can get your Twitter web address. You can write it manually or copy it.

Write a link to your Twitter profile

It doesn’t take much intelligence to write a web address of your Twitter account. The URL consists of the Twitter website address and a username.

You can see a username in a user's profile.

In the line below, you can see an example of the web address. Replace "example" with your username and you will get the link to your Twitter. You don’t need to add "@".

This link you get should be added to your IG bio. Below we describe how to do that.

Copy a Twitter URL in the app or browser

You might find it easier to copy your Twitter profile link. For example, if your off-the-wall personality made you choose a long username, or you are afraid to misspell it. You can copy your Twitter URL both in the app or browser.

Twitter application

You can copy a link on Twitter this way:

  1. Tap your profile photo.
  2. Tap your photo once again.
  3. Disclose the three dots menu.
  4. Choose Share.
  5. Choose Copy.

Now, pay attention to how the link looks. It is above the buttons in the last screenshot. The "" and a username are followed by a set of letters and symbols.

Everything that is after the username can be deleted. The link still works without them and looks neater. You can delete the redundant letters and symbols when you add the link to your Instagram.

Twitter website in a browser

In a browser, Twitter links are copied this way:

  1. Go to Profile.
  2. Select the URL in the web address field and click it with the right mouse button.

When you have copied the link to your Twitter, you should share it on Instagram.

We are sorry to warn you, the link opens in the Instagram browser, where a user is not authorized. It means they can’t subscribe to you, repost, like or comment until they log in with their Twitter account. Users are not likely to do that.

But don’t worry, in the next section we will explain how to make Twitter accounts and posts open in the app. Thus, users will view the Twitter page authorized, which means they will subscribe and give likes more often.
