Social media activities are having an increasing impact on the development of a blog or website, at least that’s how I feel about the Cool Twitter Backgrounds blog, and maybe other bloggers too. I see more and more visitors to my blog on social networks Twitter and Facebook. This activity on social networks, in addition to attracting more traffic, will also increase the credibility of a blog on search engines, especially Google.
Some of us may use the manual method to post links to blog posts. Every time we post a blog post, we need to open a social media account (Facebook and Twitter) and then manually post the link to social media. This way we can do it, but enough time. I prefer my blog post link to be automatically posted on social media without having to log into my social media account one by one.
How do you post a blog post link on social media for a campaign promoting blog content on social media to be effective?
There are several ways to choose:
Do it the old fashioned way, i.e. publish it manually. I do not recommend this method, it takes a long time.
- Use word press plugins.
- It can actually be done, but we’re not just talking about WordPress blogging.
- Use of third-party facilities, for example Twitterfeed.com, Dlvr.it.
For the https://cooltwitterbackgrounds.com/, I am using the third method, which is to use third party services. The services I use are Twitterfeed.com for Twitter and RSS Graffiti for Facebook. In fact, the Twitter feed can automatically post to Facebook as well, but I prefer RSS Graffiti posts to appear because they include images of my posts in the Facebook posts.
In this article, I’ll walk you through how to integrate my blog with Twitter, using the features of Twitterfeed.com. Ok, go ahead and use this service.

How to embed a blog with Twitter
You must first have a Twitter account. If you don’t have a Twitter account do it first, I wrote an article on how to create a Twitter account.
The first step is to open the Twitterfeed.com site and create your account there. Do you understand how? Ok, I’ll just write it down here. After opening the Twitter feed site, click on the “Newspapers” button.
Fill in the fields provided, the name of the e-mail, the desired password and enter the captcha in the field provided for this purpose. Then click on the “Create an account” button. New accounts can usually be used immediately, no email confirmation is required. See the picture.
The next step, we can immediately set up the Twitter account. Look at the top of your Twitterfeed panel, click the “Create a New Feed” button. Then fill in the columns provided, like:
Feed name: give your feed a name
Blog URL or RSS Feed URL: Enter the Rss URL of your blog feed. Test the RSS feeds to make sure the URL you entered is correct.
In the Advanced Settings section, we can define how quickly our blog feed will be posted to Twitter, how many posts will be sent, the content of the posts on Twitter and whether or not to include a link. After that, click on the button “Continue to step 2”. Oh yes, don’t forget to log into your Twitter account right away.
After doing step 2, we will be taken to a new page, where we can access our own Twitter account. Click the “Twitter” button on the page, the “Authenticate Twitter” button will appear, click the button. A Twitter authorization page will appear, click the “Authorize Request” button, then you will be returned to the Twitter feed page. The next step is to click on the “Create a Service” button at the bottom of the Twitterfeed.com page.
Until step 3 above, we have completed the setup to embed our blog on Twitter. This method can be used for WordPress based blogging or blogging with other platforms, such as Blogger, Tumblr, and others.
What we need to be careful of is that the feed URL we entered is not incorrect, make sure you have tried it on the Twitter feed page first, if the URL of your blog feed is correct. If you have performed the above steps correctly, the results will be immediately visible on your Twitter account.
Whenever you post content on a blog, in a period that is not too long, the post will also appear on Twitter and there is a link to the article on your blog. Well if you have a lot of followers on Twitter then chances are they will see the post and visit the link to the article. This is the potential traffic of social networks. In the next article, I’ll explain how to integrate a blog with Facebook.
Therefore, a brief explanation of how to integrate blogging with Twitter. Hopefully this article can help you with your social media content promotion campaign and generate traffic for your blog. Thanks for reading my article 🙂
