Media post to Mastodon for iOS via Imgur upload.

The ~~upcoming~~ now available! Mastodon for iOS app currently has a single Siri Shortcut action - "Post [Text] on Mastodon" - which only allows one to pass plain text to the app (and then to the service.) When a friend of mine replied to my links to my Share Sheet-destined Mastodon for iOS Siri Shortcut requesting for clarification, I just sortof... whipped this one up without any revision or hesitation, and then felt compelled to publish it when it immediately functioned correctly on its very first run. (100% certain that success made it a first to do so among my various projects in Siri Shortcuts.)

Video Demo


  1. Prompts to select from Photos app (single file mode.)
  2. Prompts text input for the (optional) Title of the Imgur post.
  3. Prompts text input for the (optional) Description of the Imgur post - by default, I have also added #iOS and #social-media, but obviously, please personalize these for your own use.
  4. Uploads the media to Imgur anonymously (by Default) and retrieves the Direct URL to the corresponding post.
  5. Prompts text input in front of said retrieved URL for the actual content of the Toot.
  6. Posts <your text> <imgur url> to Mastodon!
