Post to Twitter From Your ScribbleLive Stream

Send posts to your Twitter account as you publish them to your stream using the content editor’s Tweet + Post function.

Dashboard > Any Live Stream > Write


*Currently, this feature is ONLY available in the Original Writer's  Interface*


Connect Your Twitter Account

To connect your Twitter account and enable the Tweet + Post function:

  1. Go to your stream’s Write page.
  2. Click the Twitter bird logo, located below the content editor to prompt the Twitter login window.

  3. Enter your Twitter login credentials to connect your Twitter account to your stream. When your Twitter account has successfully been connected to your stream, the Twitter bird logo will change to blue, and the Tweet + Post function will be OFF by default.



Publish a ScribbleLive Post Simultaneously to Your Twitter Feed

To simultaneously Tweet posts published to your stream:

  1. Move the slider below the content editor to the ON position to enable the Tweet + Post function.
  2. Type your content into the content editor and click the Save Post + Tweet button, or hit ‘Enter’ on your keyboard to simultaneously Tweet a post published to your ScribbleLive stream.
    Note: As you type, a character counter is displayed in the bottom-right corner of the content editor to ensure posts also made to Twitter do not exceed Twitter’s 140 character limit.



Turn Off the Tweet + Post Function

If you no longer wish to publish posts made to your ScribbleLive stream to your Twitter feed, move the slider to OFF. Turn this feature on or off as you go to selectively Tweet posts made to your ScribbleLive stream. Note: The Tweet+Post function only applies to posts made in the content editor with Quick tab selected. Posts made with the Advanced tab do not enable you to simultaneously Tweet posts made to your stream by design. (i.e., the Advanced tab allows you more formatting options which cannot be carried over to your Tweet.)



Add a Linkback to Your Stream

When the Tweet + Post function is enabled, posts published to your stream will also appear in your Twitter feed. Enabling the linkback feature allows these Tweets to display a short URL linking back to your stream.

To enable an auto-generated linkback URL in a Tweet that link’s back to your stream:

  1. Go to your My Profile page, by clicking on your avatar in the top-right corner of any page, and then on My Profile in the drop-down menu.
  2. In the Connect To Social Network column, locate the Manage Social Network Sessions heading.
  3. Move the Always add linkback when tweeting slider to Yes to include a linkback when using the Tweet + Post
    Note: Including a linkback URL to a post that is simultaneously Tweeted to your Twitter feed, may cause a 2-minute delay for the linkback to successful direct to your stream.



Disconnect Your Twitter Account

To disconnect your Twitter account and disable the Tweet + Post function:

  1. Go to your stream’s Write page.
  2. Click the Twitter bird logo, located below the content editor to open the drop-down box. The drop-down box will feature the Twitter handle your stream is presently connected to.
  3. Click on the green checkmark to de-select your Twitter handle and disconnect your Twitter account from the stream. Confirm your preference when prompted.
