How To Auto-Publish And Schedule WordPress Posts To Twitter

Option 1: Using the FS Poster Standard App to add your account;

Option 2: Create your personal App and add your accounts using the personal App;

Option 3: Use the Cookie method to add your account to the plugin.

1. Adding An Account To The Plugin using the Standard App

You can add your account to the plugin using the FS Poster - Standard App. This method is the simplest method that you only need three clicks to add an account; no other action is required.

1. Go to FS Poster > Accounts > Twitter menu;

2. Click the ADD AN ACCOUNT button;

3. Click the GET ACCESS button, and authorize your Twitter account. It will use the Standard App by default and that App is hidden. You do not need to check the “Use a custom App”, if you do not have one;

4. Activate communities.

Because Twitter supports only 280 characters, sharing posts on Twitter works under certain conditions:

If the shared post contains some text and an image or a video, the first 280 characters are shared with the image or video.

If the post contains some text and a link, the exceeded text is cut from the text, but the entire link is shared.

If the link length is 280+, the link is deleted from the post, and only the text is shared.

You can set the plugin to share your post as a link card view or upload your images. If your images are not visible on the link card view, you can debug your website on the Twitter developer page to see the reason.
