How to add a tweet to a linky

Did you know you could do that? Yes, add a tweet to a linky. You don’t even need a blog.

OK, so for the Weekly Adoption Shout Out we want you to link a blog post up, but for #Memorybox or #TASPic you don’t need a blog at all and linking up tweets works really well for images that you’ve shared on Twitter. Here’s how you add a tweet to a linky…

Once you’ve sent your tweet, it’ll appear on your timeline. Click on those 3 little dots under your tweet and click ‘Copy link to Tweet’. Link tweets 1

You’ll get a box like this pop up:

Now, select all of the text and click Ctrl+C to copy it. There, it’s on your virtual clipboard now, ready to paste.

The next step is to go to the linky that you want to join in with, this is the form for #MemoryBox… but all our linky forms look pretty much the same:

Simply click in box 1. Highlight the http:// (this will mean you’ll paste over the top of it, but that’s what we want), then press Ctrl+V to paste the tweet address.

Then fill in the rest of the form with a title for the tweet, your email address (so we can contact you if there’s a problem) and you can give your name if you like too. Once you’ve submitted it, you’ll be asked if you want to return to the blog hosting the linky, or you can just close the window at that point.

That’s it. It’s just a matter of knowing where to copy the link from. Like all the posts that join in with our linkys, we’ll share the tweets as much as we can too, and we look forward to seeing some of your tweets on #TASPIC or #MemoryBox soon.
