Problems sharing combined text and image with SHARE INTENT on Twitter


You can still try with ACTION_SEND, without using the ACTION_SEND_MULTIPLE.

ACTION_SEND_MULTIPLE resulted in a force close, when I tried to create new intents for sharing to Gmail, G+, etc.

This worked perfect for me:

    Intent shareIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
    Uri uri = Uri.parse("file:///sdcard/image.jpg");
    shareIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, "Body text of the new status");
    shareIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, uri);
    return shareIntent; 


I want to give the user the possibility to share a Image and a Text with Twitter and Facebook.

Actually my code can launch Android's share intent and if the user selects Facebook, all works fine, the Image is attached and the text is shown on the body of the new status.

But something is wrong with Twitter, if i only put a Image all works fine, the image is detected by twitter and automatically uploaded to twipic, then twitter posts the link of the image on the tweet. But if i put a image and a text, then, twitter doesn't detect the image and it only puts the text on the tweet, the image is ignored. What is wrong?

this is my code:

Intent sharingIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
Uri screenshotUri = Uri.parse("file:///sdcard/image.jpg");
sharingIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, "Body text of the new status");
sharingIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, screenshotUri);
startActivity(Intent.createChooser(sharingIntent, "Share image using"));

I'm posting this because I haven't seen a solution yet that does exactly what I want.

This primarily launches the official Twitter app, or if that is not installed, either brings up a "Complete action using..." dialog (like this) or directly launches a web browser.

For list of different parameters in the URL, see the Tweet Button docs. Remember to URL encode the parameter values. (This code is specifically for tweeting a URL; if you don't want that, just leave out the url param.)

// Create intent using ACTION_VIEW and a normal Twitter url:
String tweetUrl = String.format("",
        urlEncode("Tweet text"), 
Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse(tweetUrl));

// Narrow down to official Twitter app, if available:
List<ResolveInfo> matches = getPackageManager().queryIntentActivities(intent, 0);
for (ResolveInfo info : matches) {
    if (info.activityInfo.packageName.toLowerCase().startsWith("com.twitter")) {


(URL encoding is cleaner if you have a little utility like this somewhere, e.g. "StringUtils".)

public static String urlEncode(String s) {
    try {
        return URLEncoder.encode(s, "UTF-8");
    catch (UnsupportedEncodingException e) {, "UTF-8 should always be supported", e);
        throw new RuntimeException("URLEncoder.encode() failed for " + s);

For example, on my Nexus 7 device, this directly opens the official Twitter app:

If official Twitter app is not installed and user either selects Chrome or it opens automatically (as the only app which can handle the intent):

How to share both text and image in the share intent (email and gmail)

You can find ans from below code:

Intent emailIntent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_SEND); 
emailIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, new String[] {""}); 
emailIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, EMAIL_SUBJECT); 
emailIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, EMAIL_BODY);
emailIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, Uri.parse("file://"+fileName));
startActivity(Intent.createChooser(emailIntent, "Sharing Options"));

Hope this helps..
