WordPress users can now turn blog posts into tweetstorms automatically

At the beginning of this year, WordPress.com introduced a better way to post your Twitter threads, also referred to as tweetstorms, to your blog with the introduction of the “unroll” option for Twitter embeds. Today, the organization is bringing the other side of tweetstorm publication — it’s making it possible to show your existing WordPress blog post into a tweetstorm with just a few simple clicks.

The new feature will allow you to tweet out every word of your post, also because of the accompanying images and videos, the corporate says. These are going to be automatically inserted into the thread where they belong alongside your text.

How to make use of the tweetstorm feature?

To make use of the tweetstorm feature, a WordPress user will need to click on the Jetpack icon on the right side of the page, then they will need to connect their Twitter account to their WordPress site, only if that hadn’t been done already.

The option also supports multiple Twitter accounts, if you would like to post your tweetstorms in several places.

Once Twitter is connected, you’ll select the account or accounts where you would like to tweet, then choose the newly added choice to share the post as a Twitter thread rather than one post with a link.

In the box shown, you’ll need to write a message for your tweetstorm, just like an introductory message, so people on Twitter will know what your Twitter thread is going to be discussing.

After that, when you then click on the “publish” button, the blog post is going to be shared automatically as a tweetstorm.

The feature was also created with some thoughtful touches to form the tweetstorm feel more natural as if it had been written directly on Twitter.

What WordPress said

For starters, WordPress says it’ll concentrate on the blog post’s formatting so as to work out where to separate the tweets. rather than packing the primary tweet with as many words, it places the break at the top of the primary sentence.

for instance, when a paragraph has too many words for a single tweet, it will automatically separate it out into as many tweets, rather than being stopped. an inventory block, meanwhile, is going to be formatted as an inventory on Twitter.

To help writers create a blog post that will work as a tweetstorm, you’ll prefer to view where the tweets are going to be split within the social preview feature. this enables WordPress users to raised shape the post to suit Twitter’s character limit as they write.

At the very end of the published tweetstorm, All Twitter users are going to click a link to read the post on the WordPress site.

This addresses a complaint with Twitter threads. While it’s useful to have longer words posted to social media for user attention, reading through paragraphs of content directly on Twitter is kind of difficult. But as tweetstorms grew in popularity, tools to unravel this problem emerged. the foremost popular maybe a Twitter bot called @ThreadReaderApp, which lets users read a thread during a long-form format by mentioning the account by name within the thread alongside the keyword “unroll.”

WordPress launched a new feature

With the launch of the new WordPress feature, however, people using Twitter won’t need to address third-party utilities — all they need to do is click through on the link given to them to read the content as a blog post. This, in turn, could probably help Twitter followers to blog subscribers, allowing WordPress users to extend their overall reach.

WordPress’s plans to introduce the tweetstorm feature had been announced last month (September) as coming within the Jetpack 9.0 release, arriving in early October 2020. The feature is now publicly available, the corporate says.
