How to Repost an Instagram Video on Twitter

Repurpose Instagram to Twitter
  1. Import Instagram Video

    Click the “…” menu to copy the video’s link. Then, paste the Instagram URL to import the video from the IG app.

  2. Edit

    Clip the video to the part that you want to share on Twitter. Resize to square for the Twitter feed and cut to be less than 160 seconds. Add text or other overlays that you want. Don’t forget to generate captions to make your Twitter video more accessible!

  3. Export and Post

    When the video looks good, export and download the video file as an MP4. Then, post the new video on Twitter.

Repurpose your long-form content for Twitter

Want to increase your presence online and participate in the conversation on Twitter? Try syndicating short-form video content from other social media platforms to attract new viewers. If you find a video on Instagram that you want to share, copy a link and paste it into the Kapwing website to import that clip from Instagram. Then, export the video to share on Twitter.

Twitter has heavily invested in short-form video in 2022, so it’s a good time to get more followers by sharing relevant, entertaining, and inspiring videos. With a huge global reach, Twitter is a popular place for people to have conversations, meet people, and reach new followers. All videos are cropped to square in the mobile Twitter feed, so consider resizing your canvas to 1:1 aspect ratio to tweet a video from IG. Twitter recommends 720x720 for promoted videos. Since many people browse Twitter with the sound turned off, embed captions directly into the video to reach more people. Creators can also combine videos together to make it into a compilation, cut down the video to be less than 2 minutes and 20 seconds, or add a watermark or background music for best results on Twitter.

Kapwing’s video editor also empowers you to export a JPEG from your video for a video thumbnail and decorate the thumbnail image with text, cutouts, emojis, and other brand elements. After you’re finished exporting, download the MP4 to upload on Twitter. Twitter does not support MOV, AVI, or FLV files, so ensure to convert your videos before uploading. Make memes, collages, and reaction videos or clip together your best Instagram moments to share them everywhere. Ideal for journalists, influencers, podcasters, and entertainers of all kind.

Best online video service ever. And a miracle for deaf people.
[Subtitler] is able to autogenerate subtitles for video in almost any language. I'm deaf (or almost deaf, to be correct) and thanks to Kapwing I'm now able understand and react on videos from my friends :)

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
