How and Why You Should Tweet Images With Hootsuite

If you are anything like me, you love to automate your social media, because your time is precious and it’s a huge time saver! Hootsuite is my favorite service to do this through, as it is free until you need to add team member, and very user friendly. Just this week, Hootsuite announced that they have integrated posting images through their platform directly to your twitter feed – which is HUGE NEWS!

Why tweet images?

Think back to all those times you scroll through your twitter feed. What are you most drawn to? The tweets with images, of course. Twitter research has shown that tweets that contain images increase engagement by 3 to 4 times, versus tweets posted with only text and links. That is a huge increase in engagement, bringing more eyes on to the content that you are sharing, and hopefully more click-throughs to your website.
