Twitter sharing using Fabric SDK in android

I want to share the image and text on twitter using my App. I user Fabric SDK and follow the guidelines on their official website. Problem is my image is not stored in phone storage and its a URL link. so when I pass that URL its not showing like FB sharing.

Below I have posted the Tried code for now.

private void shareViaTwitt() {
final String myUrlStr = "http://i.stack.imgur.com/2FCsj.png";
URL url;
Uri uri = null;
try {
url = new URL(myUrlStr);
uri = Uri.parse(url.toURI().toString());
} catch (MalformedURLException e1) {
e1.printStackTrace();
} catch (URISyntaxException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}

TweetComposer.Builder builder = new TweetComposer.Builder(getContext())
.text("Hi this is Sample twitter sharing")
.image(uri);
builder.show();
}


Thank you.

        /*In their official site has said need put file type uri that stored in 
phone/SD storage. So Here I just save it and get that uri and then pass it to 
fabric builder.*/
