Microblogging site Twitter is rolling out a new feature that will let iOS users share tweets directly to their Instagram Stories. This update will help users save their camera roll from getting clogged with tweet screenshots.

As per Mashable, the social media platform is enabling the feature that allows users to share a tweet to their Instagram Stories with only a couple of steps. Users might be familiar with these steps if they frequently share their IG Stories on Facebook too.

To share a tweet, just tap on any tweet, then tap on the share button, and then tap on Instagram Stories. That's all you have to do. Once you're on the Stories page on Instagram, you'll notice that the tweet you'd picked now has neatly rounded corners and a pleasant card-like design to it.

It is also worth noting though that that the share feature only lets users share the tweets to Instagram Stories and not create an Instagram post so if you wanted to share it in your profile, screenshots are still the only way.

But nonetheless, this update brings the ease of sharing tweets on Instagram Stories and may help users limit clutter in their photo gallery that comes with various tweet screenshots.

Twitter also informed its users about this new feature. However, it came with a tinge of sarcasm.

The official Twitter handle of Twitter made a sarcastic tweet that reads, "pls stop posting screenshots of Tweets on IG Stories. you can now share Tweets directly on iOS. -management."

The tweet went viral making Twitterati laugh out loud who gave equally hilarious responses. In fact, Twitter itself replied to comments in a fun manner.

Have a look.
