At the end of last October, Twitter announced that they were going to start showing images and videos in their organic news feed. This change impacted both desktop and mobile news feeds, but it took a little while to see how it would impact and influence individuals’ behavior on Twitter. Here are a couple of initial take-aways that I noticed.
- Using Twitter’s image generator is suddenly much more important. (only images that are shared directly through Twitter are going to be highlighted in the news feed.)
- Big social share tools need to play some serious catch up. (Hootsuite, Buffer, Tweetdeck, etc…)
- Using images to capture attention on Twitter just got much easier.
One of the reasons this is a huge advantage for small businesses is because it provides you with a way to showcase your business in a more personal and up front way by using images that show up in the newsfeed with our someone having the click on them Here are 3 of examples of how small business can use Twitter images in their sharing.
