There was a time when sharing a tweet to Snapchat meant taking a screenshot of the Twitter app and uploading it to Snapchat. Thankfully, that’s no longer necessary. Tweets can be directly shared to Snapchat as stickers for your stories.

At this writing, this feature is only available through the Twitter app for iPhone and iPad. When it comes to Android, though, it should work in a similar fashion.

The Snapchat Story creation screen will appear with the tweet floating on top as a sticker. Unfortunately, you can’t resize or move the tweet around on this screen. You’ll have to capture a background photo while the Twitter sticker takes up most of your screen.

You can now resize or move the tweet sticker by pinching the image and dragging it around the screen. When everything is where you want it, you can use all the normal Snapchat editing tools to customize the look of your snap.

When you’re done, tap the blue arrow to choose where to send it or with whom you want to share it.
