Sharing to Twitter: How to Properly Link Your Video
Here are several quick tips and strategies to use when sharing your videos on Twitter:
Sharing Your Videos on Twitter
Like Facebook, you can natively upload videos to Twitter so they autoplay in users’ timelines.
Twitter uploading step-by-step instructions:
- Click the Tweet button
- Click Add media, choose a video file, and click Open (Note: Maximum file size is 512MB)
- In the Edit window, you can trim the length of your selected video (Note: Maximum video length is 2 minutes and 20 seconds)
- Click Done when you’re finished with your edits
- Click Tweet to share your video
Outside of native uploads, if your goal is driving video views through your YouTube channel, here are some quick tips for sharing YouTube links:
Paste links directly from YouTube into your Twitter account to ensure that video thumbnails are included in each Tweet. Do not use a social media scheduling service (Hubspot, Buffer, MeetEdgar, HootSuite, etc.) or the thumbnails may not display correctly. Also, make sure to use industry-related hashtags!
