Many of the apps on your iPhone can automatically integrate with some of your other apps. This is very common with social media apps, such as Twitter.
That integration makes it convenient for you to share information from one app with another.
So if you are browsing the Internet through your Safari app and find a Web page that you want to share on Twitter, you can do so with just a couple taps of a button.
Our tutorial below will show you how to share Safari links through Twitter by taking advantage of the integration that is included between these two apps on your device.
