This looks like a fun new tool from Automattic, the creators of WordPress so we figured we’d give it a whirl. This tool helps you craft long multithread message on Twitter, also known as a tweetstorm. The following steps will walk you through how to setup WordPress to publish a blog post as a multithreaded tweet.
Step 1 – Activate and Install Jetpack
Jetpack is a plugin that essentially gives you all the internal plugins and features from WordPress.com, (which it should be noted is different that WordPress.org). Next, you’ll just follow the setup steps to connect Jetpack to a WordPress.com account.
Step 2 – Connect WordPress to Twitter in the Jetpack settings
From here you’ll be sent over you WordPress.com, where a lot of the features of Jetpack are located. Also at this step you can go ahead and login into the Twitter account you’ll be connecting.
Step 3 – Connect Jetpack To Twitter
It should only take a couple clicks to authorize the connection assuming you’re logged into the right Twitter account. Once this is setup, Jetpack will automatically tweet your post as a link when you hit publish.
Step 4 – Publish a blog post as a multithreaded tweet
Once you’ve crafted your first message and selected ‘Share your entire blog post as a Twitter thread in muiltiple Tweets’, all you have to do do is click Publish and Jetpack should publish a blog post as a multithreaded tweet.
Be advised that we usually keep Jetpack inactive or uninstalled from our sites as it can slow page load speed down by a couple of seconds. Fortunately you can just reactive it to use this feature, which based on results, looks great!
