Signing up for Hypefury
To get started sharing your tweets on Instagram, all you have to do is sign up for one of the Hypefury plans. The Insta-shot feature is available on both the Standard and Premium Hypefury plans. You can also give it a go by signing up for the 7-day free trial!
All you have to do is log in with your Twitter, add an email address, and adjust the time zone to activate your Hypefury account. Once that is done, you’ll be good to go to schedule your tweets. You’ll still need to link your Facebook and IG accounts to share tweets to Instagram.
Connecting your Facebook and Instagram accounts
Once your account is set up, you can connect to your FB and IG accounts in the settings tab.
To connect your Facebook to Hypefury, all you have to do is click “connect” under Facebook and log in. Once you’ve connected your Facebook to Hypefury, you can proceed to connect your Instagram as well. Follow the steps below to connect your Hypefury and Instagram accounts.
- Create a Facebook page (not an account).
- Connect your Facebook page to your Instagram.
- Convert your IG from a personal account to a professional account.
- Connect your IG to Hypefury in the Hypefury settings tab.
To auto-share your tweets, you must have your Instagram set to a professional account. Setting your IG to a professional account won’t affect how it works. It’ll actually give you access to features personal accounts don’t have access to, and the setting is reversible.
Customizing your Insta-shot
To give you the edge over uninspired screenshots, the Insta-shot feature is customizable.
It allows you to use a name that your Instagram followers might be more familiar with, and you can add color to your posts using the color panel.
To amp up your visuals, you can also use one of our pre-made templates or, alternatively, upload a custom image. All you have to do is select “upload” and pick an image you’d like to use.
Setting up your Insta-shot is a pretty neat option if you want to stay completely on brand for the long term, or just for a series of branded posts!
Set up your tweets to be shared to Instagram
Once you’re happy with how your Insta-shot looks, you can share your tweets to Instagram right away. All you have to do is click on “What would you like to share” and type your tweet. To have your tweet shared on Instagram, simply click on the IG icon at the bottom of the composer. That’s it!
Whenever your tweet goes live, it will be shared directly to Instagram as well. A high-quality, colorful and vibrant image of your tweet, capable of grabbing the attention of the Instagram hordes, will be posted for you!
You don’t have to take a screenshot, download an image, or chant some incantation for the magic to happen. It’s all automatic, and you get to grow your influence twice as fast on auto-pilot!

Strategies to use for your Instagram
Success on Instagram, as on any other social media platform, requires you to put in some work. You’ll have to keep at it and be consistent before you start seeing your actions pay off.
But you don’t have to do it alone! Here are some helpful tips to help you along the way.
Go big on captions
Visuals are the heart of Instagram posts, but you shouldn’t skimp on your captions. They are a great way to add context to your posts and share a little bit more about yourself. It’s an extra shot at compelling the reader to engage with you, to explore deeper into your brand, and to stick around and follow you!
Keep your captions brief and punchy – they should be inviting to your audience. Long and dreary captions will, in most cases, bore the reader and leave you with zero engagement on your posts.
As long as they are appropriate, don’t hesitate to throw some emojis into your captions too.!They’ll help you express what words can’t and they are proven to improve engagement. Just don’t drown your message in them!
Remember that, like other platforms, Instagram functions thanks to a particular algorithm. In order to improve your Instagram SEO, make use of your captions wisely!
Work the hashtag
Another great way to boost your IG performance is to maximize your use of hashtags. They are a great way to boost your impressions and get people talking about your brand. Instagram allows up to 30 hashtags per post, so make the most of them! Pick catchy hashtags that people are likely to share, or latch onto some of the popular ones.
Within reason, be sure to use as many hashtags as possible. If they are relevant to the post or they reflect your brand’s message, go for them! There are many free tools out there to help you find great hashtags for your posts. You should check them out and make sure every time you post, you’re giving yourself the best chance possible.
Instargram users often use hashtags and keywords to search for content that is relevant to their interests, so make use to use hashtags that are in line with what you are posting about.
It’s a good idea to use common-enough hashtags, but the more niche ones can also be very effective. Think about it – they are only used by a very particular and, therefore, dedicated audience, who will be very happy to find a new post that speaks to them!
On Instagram as on every other social media platform, engagement plays a large role in generating growth for your account. Over and above posting great content, you have to engage with other users as well. Comment on the posts you like and talk to the people commenting on yours! It is social media, after all – you have to interact with people and show them you value their attention and their time. That’s how you build lasting relationships!
Another key to seeing Instagram growth for your account is posting consistently. You can’t post once weekly and hope to grow your account! You have to post regularly and often, and still make sure you’re always putting out great content. This doesn’t mean 5 posts a day, but find a rhythm that works for you and keeps your followers engaged. At least one post a day is a good place to start.
Posting consistently will help people grow to expect quality content from you, which in turn means your following will grow as more people come across your posts and see their value!
One more thing you can leverage in your posts is your own uniqueness. It might sound cliché, but people want to experience new and exciting things – stale and dated isn’t appealing to anyone! If there’s nothing compelling about your content, people won’t stay as long as you might want them to and they’ll stick to what they’ve always known.
Create an experience for your followers that no one else can match and you’ll be rewarded by the growth of your Twitter followers.
For that, the key is to remain authentic and speak from a genuine place. You are probably more interesting than you think you are – you just need to believe that what you have to say, if presented properly, will reveal your unique personality and strike some people as interesting!
Make use of Instagram Stories
Making Instagram posts may sound like the key to big engagement, but that isn’t exactly how the platform works. Instagram isn’t just posts – it’s also Stories!
Instagram Stories are a very popular aspect of the platform, allowing for a more casual and continuous content stream throughout the day. Stories disappear after 24 hours unless saved into a Story Highlight, so they are more designed for immediate consumption.
They can also help you lead your followers to your posts! You can share an Instagram post in your Stories so as to expose people to your post even more. It’s easy to miss a new post on one’s feed and not everyone scrolls their feed all that much – but many watch the Stories of the people they follow!
Stories can be used in very creative ways to help you grow on Instagram – check out this post to learn about Instagram Story Stickers!
Realize Instagram is not Twitter
Just because you can share your tweets to Instagram doesn’t mean Twitter and IG are the same. What works on Twitter won’t always work on Instagram! The audience is different and you’ll have to be adaptable to succeed in that new environment.
But, most of all, you’ll want to have fun – because if not, what’s the point?
Now that you know how to share your tweets to Instagram, you can maximize your reach across these two social media platforms. There’s no limit to how far you can grow your brand, so don’t settle!
With Hypefury, taking your brand to the next level can be your reality.
There’s really no reason you should be missing out on connecting with a whole new different kind of audience. So get scheduling some tweets, and let’s conquer Twitter and Instagram together!
