In short: If you can’t share an Apple Music link on Twitter, manually copy the link to the song into a tweet, add the “&” symbol between the “?” and the “i” symbol in the link.
Did you know that you can share an Apple Music link, including songs, albums, radio stations and playlists, to Twitter? Here’s what you should know about the whole thing.
How to share Apple Music links on Twitter
On the mobile app, navigate to a song then tap the Share button on the bottom left of the screen and tap the Share Song option. Choose where you want to share the song.
You should see the X app (previously called Twitter) on the list of apps. If you don’t see it, tap More and choose Twitter from the list of apps to share the song.
On a computer, you can choose to share the song via Twitter or manually copy a link or HTML code, which opens the music in Apple Music on the web.
Search for or navigate to an item (such as a song or album) to share, then click the More button. Choose Share, then choose Twitter to post the link (opens the link in a Twitter window).
When a person sees your tweet and clicks on the link, the song, album or playlist opens in Apple Music on the web, where that person can play it, add it to their library, and more.
Cannot share Apple Music on Twitter?
Ever since Elon Musk took over Twitter and changed the name of the app to X, many Apple Music users have reported that they can’t share Apple Music links to the app.
If you cannot share an Apple Music link on Twitter, you have to change the link. First, copy the link and then add the “&” symbol between the “?” and the “i” before publishing the tweet.
The link should look like this:
Instead of looking like this:
Both links should open the Apple Music track on a computer, but if you want to share the link to Twitter on mobile, you should change the link so it looks like the first one, not the second one.
Keep in mind, however, that changing the link will open up the song inside the album. This is the best workaround I’ve discovered so far, and I hope Apple Music can fix this issue in the future.
