New to twitter, tweet advice please?

(Claire Mead) #1

Hi, I’m quite new to twitter and I know how to tweet for myself and add images but if I want to share someone else’s listing and I click the twitter button (beside facebook and pinterest) it does share the link but it doesn’t show a photo. It would be better to show a picture as many people wouldn’t click on a link without an image?
Am I doing something wrong? ie- I’m doing the daily listing thread and am happily tweeting but I think it would be more effective with a photo?

I’m having the same problem Claire @kernowclaire, and think the same as you much better with a photo. Would be interested to know too

Hi, I hope this helps @kernowclaire I’ve tweeted one of your items from Folksy page ( hope that’s right) using a tablet, by saving your pic first (like when we tweet my own). It does show photo but in does tweet under my logo etc, if that’s what you wanted. Anyway, hope that helps! :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

Hi Claire and Tina
I use buffer, the free version, it’s easy to share a clickable, linked picture, just link it o your twitter account, find what you want on the net and it will say ^Share image* in the corner of the picture, click that and you get an option of share now, next or add to schedule, here is the link if you would like to take a look https://buffer.com/
Hope that helps

I can’t do the pinned at the top on my twitter account, is it due to which app I use?

Fantastic, that works great once I worked it all out. Thanks very much for your help.

Hi, I found the buffer.com has worked really well. Takes a minute to work it all out but it does add a photo which is definitely advertising the items more. You can also get them ready to tweet at certain times of the day which is great when I’m at work. Well worth a try.
