Sharing through to Twitter is now possible, if you want to go cross-platform, as it were(!); (right) there's now a Settings dialog, embedded from the Profile menu....

You can find Instagram in AppList, either in the Symbian client or here.

Hopefully the AppList Store is working out for you all. See here just in case you haven't already got this installed or if this is new to you. Also, if you have custom firmware installed, make sure you tick the option in settings to show 'unsigned' applications, you'll see extra applications!
