Now this is an Instagram feature that has been way too long in the coming if you ask me. It’s been an annoyance to everyone who has different usernames on the respective platforms. Worry no more because from today, as long as your Twitter and Instagram accounts are connected your @mentions will be translated.
For example, my Instagram name is @SianTo and my Twitter name is @Geekisnewchic.
So when I’m tagged on Instagram using my IG name @SianTo and the pic is Tweeted……
I get an @mention on Twitter using my correct username @Geekisnewchic. Brilliant.
For this to work you will need to connect the two accounts. Go to your profile > Share settings > Twitter.
You’ll now never miss an Instagram tagging again! Good work Twitter and Facebook!
