How to Auto Post Twitter Using Feed140

As we all know, Twitter is a highly popular and fast-paced social media platform. For this reason, it can be hectic for marketers to come up with new auto post Twitter updates without getting lost in thousands of tweets posted every minute.

To stand out, you need to have a strong Twitter strategy. An effective solution we would recommend is to make use of ‘evergreen tweets’ — and Feed140 has the perfect feature to auto post Twitter!

If you’re involved in content marketing or any type of web marketing, you may have heard of the term ‘evergreen content’. Evergreen content is content that is timeless and continually relevant to an audience even long after its initial publication. Just think of a couple of top tips, how-tos, quotes and lists. An example would be ’15 ways to lose weight fast’ or ‘Best gardening practices’.

Posting evergreen content on Twitter ensures you with consistent traffic and visibility. Since they never go out of date, you can recycle and reuse them in case you run out of new content to share. With the help of Feed140, you can schedule your tweets on a regular basis without the hassle.

Now that we are done setting up our account, we can now start organizing our content. Before we can automate twitter posts, the first thing we need to do is to create a Playlist. To begin, click the Playlists tab.

Below are two options you can choose when adding a Playlist.

Note: If you’re using a free Twitter auto poster account, you can only create one playlist. To make more playlists, upgrade your subscription to Expert or Pro. More info about the available subscriptions here.

3. Add Items to Your Playlist

It’s now time to put your evergreen tweets to use! Don’t forget that aside from text posts, you can also upload images and put links to your items. Try to include these for an extra boost in traffic.

Prepare your updates and follow these easy steps.

Note: With a free Twitter auto post account, you are allowed add up to 100 items of text and visual content in a single playlist. Take note that each Playlist Item has a character limit of 140 for text posts and 117 for an item with image attachment.  

Craft a Text Post

Here are two simple ways to add a text post to a playlist. We’ll stick to the topic, “Money Saving Tips” as an example.

a. Manually add an item

Select a Playlist.

10

Just below the Playlist settings, there’s a “compose box”. This is where we can add our tweets.

11

Type in your tweet. Save your update by clicking Add Item.

12

This is the item we have just added. You can view and edit it under Playlist Items.

13

b. Upload items from file

Feed140 supports batch uploading of items, making it more convenient and time-saving.

To use this feature, first, you have to save your tweets on a .txt file

14

Click Upload Items From File.

4. Customize Your Settings

Since we are done adding the content we need, the final step to this process is to customize the settings to auto post Twitter.  What we have to make sure is that we set up our desired Social Network Queue, Frequency, and Play/Repeat/Shuffle functions correctly.

21

a. Select Twitter Queue

Since we want to post our updates on Twitter, we will set our playlist to send items to Twitter Queue.

Just tick the box beside Twitter Queue and click Save.

22

b. Set Frequency

You can change the item publication using the frequency bar. Press (-) or (+), or drag the cursor to adjust.

c. Active/Paused, Repeat and Shuffle

By default, your playlist will send updates at the rate you’ve chosen, in the order they were entered into the playlist. Once every update has been published once, the playlist will set itself to Paused. The Shuffle setting will send updates in a random order, and the Repeat setting will let the playlist run continuously.

Just click the icons to activate.

We have just completed the steps to auto-post to Twitter! Here’s the sample post we just created.
