As part of our competency task we need to share our WordPress blog posts on Twitter. This sounds tricky, but it’s actually really easy!
WordPress has a really easy to understand tutorial here, which explains how to approve a connection between your WordPress blog and your Twitter account. By following these instructions I was able to connect my accounts and automatically share posts on Twitter and FaceBook. I can also choose not to share posts by using the “Sharing” feature:
I can uncheck the boxes if I don’t want to share my WordPress posts on any of my connected social media accounts, and I can also change the text I’d like to share with the link. I can also click “Connect New Service” to connect with other accounts, such as Tumblr or Google+.
If you’re still really new to WordPress or Twitter and need a more visual guide, you might find this video tutorial helpful!
