A few years ago, Twitter decided to stop showing Instagram photos directly in the feed. These days, when you share from Instagram, all you see is a description and a link. And because Twitter is becoming much more image-heavy (tweets with images get 18% more clicks, 89% more favorites, and 150% more retweets*), you want to be able to engage followers with actual photos instead of links.
