There’s no doubting the popularity of Twitter and its 140-character bursts. But don’t get content with just tweeting out text — a recent study shows that tweets with images attached are most popular. So here’s a spin on the usual photo and infographic attachments: turn your tweets into works of art with Tweegram, a free app (yes, free!) for iPhones.
Tweegram is easy to use. Here’s a step-by-step guide:
Step 1: Launch the app
Step 2: Enter up to 140 characters to share with your community of followers (bonus: you can even add emoticons to spice things up).
Step 3: Tap the “Next” button in the upper right hand corner and the real fun begins.
Step 4: Scroll through options for various backgrounds to enhance the style of your tweet.
Step 4.5: Some options even allow for you to insert your own image. This option is an additional $0.99 for the “Pro Pack” and gives you unlimited premium styles with custom pictures and no limit on characters. So for anyone who is an avid and die-hard tweeter, this is really a great investment and really helps your tweets stand out.
Step 5: Select your favorite one and press “Share” in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
Step 6: Choose where you want to share your tweegram. You can post to any number of social networks (e.g., Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr) or email to recipients.
Step 7: I chose Twitter for this example, so I can add an additional message to my tweet and add my location.
Step 8: Press “Send,” and that’s it! Your tweegram is now available for all your followers to see.
