There’s no doubting the popularity of Twitter and its 140-character bursts. But don’t get content with just tweeting out text — a recent study shows that tweets with images attached are most popular. So here’s a spin on the usual photo and infographic attachments: turn your tweets into works of art with Tweegram, a free app (yes, free!) for iPhones.
Tweegram is easy to use. Here’s a step-by-step guide:
Step 1: Launch the app
Step 2: Enter up to 140 characters of brilliant text to share with your community of followers (bonus: you can even add emoticons to spice things up).
Step 3: Tap the “Next” button in the upper right hand corner and the real fun begins.
Step 4: Scroll through options for various backgrounds to enhance the style of your tweet.
Step 4.5: Some options even allow for you to insert your own image. This option is an additional $0.99 for the “Pro Pack” and gives you unlimited premium styles with custom pictures and no limit on characters. So for anyone who is an avid and die-hard tweeter, this is really a great investment and really helps your tweets stand out.
Step 5: Scroll through the options, and select your favorite one, the one that truly coneys your mood and message. Then press “Share” in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
Step 6: Now the world is your oyster, and the choice is truly yours. So, you choose where you want to share your new Tweegram. You can post to any number of social networks (e.g., Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr), email to recipients, or save it to your photo album.
Step 7: I chose Twitter for this example, so I can add an additional message to my tweet and add my location.
Step 8: Press “Send,” and that’s it! Your Tweegram is now available for all your followers to see.
Don’t believe me? Let’s just go to Twitter, and check it out.
And there you have it, your beautifully created tweet!
Hope you all enjoy this app, and have as much fun with it as I do.
