Today’s tutorial is a quick and short one and it’s going to be something you can do in under one minute! That’s right. In this post, I will show you how to share a pin to Twitter using Tailwind.
And the best part? You won’t have to worry about the caption being cut off when it’s shared to that platform! 🙂
Okay, why do this at all?
Because it’s an easy, effective way to boost traffic to your blog with the same piece of content.
That means you are sharing one pin to both Twitter and Pinterest.
But here’s the best part: You get traffic from both platforms. Sweet, right?!
I’m guessing you’re already familiar with adding and scheduling pins to your Pinterest account via Tailwind. If not, read my Tailwind post before you read this one.

And now, here’s the Twitter tip you’ve been waiting for!

Open the Publisher Dashboard
Click on the left-hand navigation panel of your Tailwind Account and select ‘Publisher’.
Under that, select ‘Scheduled Pins’.
Edit the Pin Description
Twitter has a character limit of 250, but the interesting thing is, when you schedule a pin via Tailwind, the limit you are permitted is only 100 characters. 🙂
Clicking on the description will allow you to edit the length. Click and copy the pin description that already exists.
Truncate to 100 characters
I use WordCounter.net to do this and it is excellent! Just paste the copied text into the box and cut the length of the description to exactly 100 characters or less.
Now copy the truncated description and paste it back into the Description box.
Select ‘Add to Twitter’ checkbox
At the bottom of the scheduling box, you will see the option to add the pin to Twitter. Simply check the box and hit ‘save’.
That’s it! See how it looks on Twitter 🙂

IMPORTANT: Do this for only one instance of the pin, even if you’ve scheduled it to multiple boards. Since this changes the description on Pinterest as well, keep the most important key words for the first 100 characters.
