How to Add Photos to Tweets

Oct 2013

Everything on social media is better with a picture, right? Take Facebook for example—it’s been shown that posts that contain photos pull in more engagement than photos with just text. Or look at Pinterest or Instagram, whose platforms operate solely through the success of user-generated photos. With Twitter, adding photos to your tweets gives you the opportunity to add more substance to what you’re saying. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words, and you’re restricted to 140 characters within each tweet!
