How To Post A Tweet

Post by HiddenHollow »

Any tweet can be posted to the forum - plain text, photo or video using the Media Embed function.

These steps are what I use on my laptop PC. Other devices (smartphones, tablets, iPads, etc.) may require slightly different steps that are functionally equivalent. It's basically the same steps that are used to post a YouTube video.

1. From Twitter, select the tweet you want to post and copy it's URL (red arrow).

2. Open a new post using the Full Editor and click on the Media Embed button which will place the media tags in the text box.

3. Paste the URL of the tweet copied in step 1 between the media tags.

That's it. You're done.

Yeah, easy peasy. Basically the same as posting a YouTube video. In step 1, just think of the YouTube URL instead of the Twitter URL.
