Create Twitter

About this task

Create a Twitter message allows you to create messages (aka tweets) in the application that can then be posted to Twitter accounts you have integrated with.

To create a Twitter message:

Procedure

  1. Go to Messages > All Messages.
  2. Click Create New Message.
  3. Click Create Twitter Message.
  4. Give your Twitter message a name in the Message Name text box.
    The Twitter message name is the unique identifier for the Twitter message. Think of it as the name of a document. You should name the Twitter message something relevant to its purpose.
  5. Add the content for the Twitter message in the Body text box.

    Twitter messages (aka tweets) are limited to 140 characters. The number of characters currently used in the Twitter message is displayed below the Body text box.

    Note:
    • We automatically append Txt STOP to <XXXXX> to end, HELP for info. <XX>msg/mo. Msg&Data rates may apply. to all SMS confirmation messages.
    • Any time an SMS call-to-action is used (for example, Text Helptest to 33233 to receive a coupon), you must clearly display the following terms of service/conditions text:
      
      Message & Data Rates May Apply. Text STOP to end. Ts&Cs: bronto.com/sms							
      This includes SMS calls-to-action in emails, tweets, Facebook posts, webforms, web pages, and any form of print communication.
  6. Optional: Check the Shorten and track URLs box to shorten long URLs and allow the application to track the URLs used in the Twitter message.

    In addition to shortening URLs, which allows for more content, this setting also allows the application to track the URLs used in a Twitter message, thus allowing you to more effectively monitor the effectiveness of a Twitter message.

    For more information on viewing shortened URLs and their associated metrics, see View The Shortened URLs Used In Your Message.

  7. Optional: In the Message Organization section, you can choose to add the Twitter message to a folder.
  8. Click Save.
