How to Add Your Instagram Profile Link to Your Twitter Bio
The process of adding your Instagram profile link to your Twitter bio is fairly simple.
It consists of three basic steps.
The first is finding your profile link and copying it.
The second is to head to Twitter to edit your bio.
And third is to paste the link you copied.
Even though you can add your profile link easily, the exact steps are confusing to many, because of all the new features and the advanced interface updates.
Getting the link from Instagram can be a task in itself, as not many users are aware of how they can obtain it.
There is a need to navigate deeper into the app to get your profile link.
Once you can copy the link, you can share it with whomever you want and how many ever times you please.
Besides the profile link, the most common way to get to someone's profile or get someone else to ours is by sharing the account username.
By sharing your username, the other person can easily type it out on the search bar and give you a follow.
Let us go over the exact steps that are required to copy your Instagram link and paste it into your Twitter bio.
1. Copying the Profile Link

If you do not have the app, you can get it from the Play Store or the App Store.
There are two ways to get your Instagram profile link.
Let us look at the shortcut way or the process that is more time-efficient first.
All accounts on Instagram have unique URLs, and an account username registered on Instagram is at the back of it.
You can try it by typing “instagram.com/” followed by your username.
You do not need to include the “@” symbol here.
Make sure you add “/” before your username.
The second method is to copy the profile link from your account.
Follow the steps listed below to copy your Instagram account link.
1. Opening Instagram.

3. Click on the menu icon. (You will find this at the top right side of the screen.)
4. Choose then “QR Code” option.
5. Click on share.
6. Go to the bottom of this screen and click on “copy.”
By following the above steps, you will successfully copy your account link.
