How can I have broadcasts automatically published to Twitter?

Beyond its use for personal purposes, social networking provides a way for online professionals to share information and network with a wider audience. Reaching out to a wider audience through social networking can benefit your business and help grow your list.

Twitter lets you publish very short blurbs quickly and have them syndicated to people following your profile. Seeing the value of using this technology as a way to expand the reach of email newsletters, we've developed a feature that allows AWeber users to automatically post a tweet linking to a web version of any broadcast message.

    Simply click "Authorize app" here. 
  4. This will take you back to your AWeber "List Settings" page. You can scroll down to the "Social Media / Sharing" section again, and you will see your Twitter account.

    If you click the "Make Default" link, all broadcasts from this list will be tweeted by that Twitter account by default (you can disable this for an individual broadcast manually).

    Note: Each list can have its own default account.

    Clicking "Connect To A New Twitter Account" will allow you to add more Twitter accounts for you to use - these connected Twitter accounts can be used in any of your lists.
  5. After you've created your message, click the "Send Options" button to access the settings of your broadcast.

    Schedule a Broadcast option selected from Send Options drop down menu

  6. Click the "Edit" button for the sharing section.

  8. Then, you can choose to tweet the message using the "Social Media" section. To do so, select your connected Twitter account from the drop down menu.

    Note: You can also choose to not tweet this message (useful if you set a Twitter account as your default), or even add a new Twitter account from this menu. Adding a new Twitter account works the same way here as it does on the "List Settings" page.

  9. Once complete, click the "Apply" button and proceed with the scheduling of your broadcast.
