Transferring Twitter and Instagram Posts to Day One

I have had several requests about how to automatically transfer Twitter and Instagram postings to the Day One journal.

It is straightforward. You need to join the free IFTTT (If This Then That) service. You can sign up either through their iOS or Android app or at their website.

You need the Day One journaling app. This is available for iOS and Andriod and Mac. There is a free version and a subscription version. If you are not familiar with Day One, then start with the free version to give it a try. I have talked about this app many times and say again, it is a tremendous app and I use it every day, sometimes more than once a day.

Once you are logged on IFTTT tap on, discover at the bottom of the screen, and then tap on the search icon at the top of the screen.

Search for Day One, then scroll down to find “Save your tweets to Day One.” Tap on “Turn on.” Then scroll down to “Which Journal” and choose which journal you want to save the tweet. If you have the free version, only one journal is available. I have the subscription service and have 11 journals. More on that in a later post. Now tap on “Save.”

Then search for “Instagram to DayOne” and go through the same process as above.

You are done! Your tweets and Instagram posts will start showing up in Day One.
