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! 🙂

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.

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.

Did you find that too complex? Watch the super short video tutorial below and let me know if you still have any questions. 🙂

I have a question. Doesn’t editing the description of a scheduled pin change the description for Pinterest too?

    Yes it does. Which is why you should not do it for every pin, but just one instance of the pin. The advantage is that if you keyword the first 100 characters right that pin can rank as well in the smart feed 🙂
