iOS users can now easily share tweets as Instagram Stories

Twitter's iOS app has been upgraded to allow users to post tweets to their Instagram Story fast and effortlessly, according to the company. The new experience, which began as a test last year, is designed to assist those who frequently publish tweets on Facebook's Instagram. Users could previously publish tweets on Instagram — or any other social media — by capturing screenshots natively.

The feature is accessible through the iOS share sheet: simply hit the share icon below any tweet and choose “Instagram Stories” from the list of applications. The tweet can be enlarged, repositioned, and enhanced with the image service's standard selection of text, stickers, music, and annotations once it's on Instagram.

The upgrade is only available for iOS users, as the Android version of Twitter does not currently support sharing tweets on Instagram Stories.

Of course, you could always take a copy of a tweet and manually publish it to an Instagram Story. However, the new interface simplifies the process and improves the results. For the time being, it appears to work better with text- and image-based tweets — we tried the feature on a tweet with an embedded video, and it was imported as a static image by Instagram.

It's worth noting that the tweets currently being shared on Instagram Stories do not allow viewers to tap on them to view them on Twitter. This means that Instagram users may be unable to understand the context of the tweets, if any exists. Nonetheless, the upgrade makes it easier to share tweets on Instagram and may help users reduce the amount of clutter in their camera roll caused by several tweet captures.

Twitter's formal integration with Instagram Stories comes after Snapchat implemented similar capabilities last year. Twitter is only making the new sharing function available to iOS users for now, similar to the Snapchat integration, and it hasn't said when it will be available on Android.

Facebook adds End-to-End Encryption for Voice and Video calls on Messenger

Facebook is bringing plenty of new features to Messenger users who enable end-to-end encryption (E2EE). With E2EE enabled, you can now make voice or video calls to Messenger contacts, just like you can with WhatsApp. Anyone outside of the sender and recipient, including Facebook, will not be able to listen to your voice and video calls if you use end-to-end encryption (E2EE) option, so it’s like adding an extra layer of security to your voice and video chats on Messenger. You can still report messages to Facebook if required, according to the company. Pic Credit: Facebook End-to-end encryption for text messages has been enabled in Facebook Messenger in 2016, when the company launched a "secret conversation" option to the app. That mode now includes the ability to make phone calls. Messenger now receives more than 150 million video calls every day, according to Facebook, which claims the service is being added as interest in voice and video chats surges. A minor update is bein
