If you’re someone who shares a lot of tweets outside of Twitter, you know the fight. Twitter’s share button, like YouTube, is proprietary, which means you have to wade through Twitter’s own sharing options to find your iPhone’s standard Share sheet instead. However, there is a hidden trick that allows you to open the iOS sharing options right away.
The key? Just press and hold Twitter’s share button instead of tapping it. That’s all! After holding down the button for about a second, Twitter will pull up the familiar Share Sheet with all the apps and services you might want to share the tweet to. Unfortunately, this trick only works on iOS right now, so Android users will still have to go the “long”; way.
Long press gestures are a staple for iOS. They allow developers to add extra features to apps and services, whether they’re editing something, extending a feature, or giving you quick access to a tool. On Facebook, for example, you can long press tabs in the navigation bar to delete them or manage notifications.
You see gestures with long presses everywhere in iOS, from editing widgets to showing quick actions, and there are even there to share screenshots faster.
