Why can't I share directly to Instagram?

Currently, it's against Instagram's terms to share directly to your Instagram account from the desktop. They want you to share using the Instagram mobile app only.

We get around this by letting you SMS (Short Message Service or text message) your image to your mobile device, so you can quickly share it via the Instagram app. Once it’s on your phone, it’s easy to share on Instagram.
