Flow of the week: Automatically tweet your photos from Instagram

Today, on flow of the week, we are going to show you how to keep your followers on Instagram and Twitter up to date with your latest photos. All you need to do is use the template available here.


This flow will run anytime you upload new content on Instagram. As you can see from the flow definition, we are using the HTTP action to get the actual image instead of just getting a link to it. The image is returned in the “body” of the response. We can actually use this in our Post a new Tweet action along with the caption text to automate the posting tweets for new uploads on Instagram. The HTTP action is very versatile – you could potentially also backup your Instagram posts to OneDrive or Dropbox as shown in the template here.

Let us know how you are using Flow in the comments section below.
