If you’re someone who shares a lot of tweets outside of Twitter, you know the battle. Twitter’s share button is proprietary like YouTube’s. So you need to go through Twitter’s sharing options to find your iPhone’s regular sharing sheet instead. However, there is a hidden trick that you can use to open the standard iOS sharing options right away.
The key? Just long press Twitter’s Share button instead of tapping it. That’s it! After holding the button for about a second, Twitter brings up the familiar sharing sheet with all the apps and services you might want to share the tweet with. Unfortunately, this trick currently only works on iOS, so Android users still have to go the “long”
Long press gestures is an iOS staple. With them, developers can add additional functions in apps and services in order to edit something, expand a function or quickly access a tool. For example, on Facebook, you can long-press the tabs in the navigation bar to remove them or manage notifications.
You’ll see long-press gestures across iOS, from editing widgets to viewing quick actions, and it’s even there to share screenshots faster.
