Posting ratings to Twitter used to work

From 2012 to 2021 every time I rated a movie I got a popup that asked me if I wanted to post the rating to any of a number of choices. I always choose Twitter, so all of my ratings are in my Twitter page. This worked both from the IMDB web page and from my iPhone. This stopped working some time after June 6. I still get a popup on my iPhone but Twitter is no longer among the options. The web page doesn't have a pop up at all. I no longer remember what I did to link the accounts, but I am pretty sure it was something built into IMDb, some option to link my Twitter account, but I can't find it anywhere. I don't think I used any kind of service like ITTT or Zapier to do it. But searching for anything related to posting ratings to Twitter all seem to be old and are either requests for IMDb to add the feature or ways to do it with ITTT and RSS feeds, which IMDb removed years ago.

Hi @blu28

It sounds like you may not have Twitter enabled/displayed on your iOS Share Sheet. To customize the Apps displayed in the share sheet on your device, please refer to the steps listed here.

That wasn't the problem but it got me on to the right track. You are correct that Twitter wasn't showing on the Share Sheet, but it wasn't because it wasn't enabled. It turns out that IOS 14 has an issue where apps disappear from the Share Sheet. Many others have reported the same issue. Rebooting the phone fixed it. Thanks.
