How To Add Your Blog Feed To Your Twitter Account

I have been getting requests via email on how to do this so I went ahead and created a tutorial for you guys to follow below. There are so many things you should be doing to promote your blog post after you have created it. Posting them on Twitter is one of them. Promoting your blog post on Facebook is also a great way to get social media traffic as well. If you could automate some of these processes required to promote your blog posts i’m sure life would be sweet!

I now I sometimes get lazy after creating a post and hold off promoting it until the following day. Not a good habit to get into especially if you know you are not disciplined enough to do it. But if you can automate a few promotional techniques that will help you drive traffic to your blog post where all you have to do is set it and forget it then its all good. Now what I am about to show you will help you do just that. Every time you create a blog post it will drip to your Twitter account helping you save time of posting it manually. This is a very super easy process that I am about to show you right now.


STEP #1
Go to Twitter Feed (www.twitterfeed.com) sign up and create an account. Once you have done that you can begin to create your new feed.

Create New Twitter Feed

STEP #2 Enter the name of your feed and the url of your blog RSS feed.

Setup New Twitter Feed

STEP #3 Here you can customize the frequency of  your feed update, the post title and description perferences, which url shorten link to use, and etc.

Advanced Twitter Feed Settings

STEP #4 Your feed is completed. You have the option of including other feeds like Facebook, Ping.Fm, or another Twitter account.

STEP #5 Congratulations! Your new feed is active. You have officially set it and forget it. Rinse and repeat to add your other blog feeds.

    Sam,

    Thanks for another great post. Also depending on your wordpress theme, some like Headway have a built in option that automatically updates your blog post to twitter from your blogs dashboard.

    I use wordpress and it has social media tools that will automate tweeting, etc. It has saved me time and I get fairly regular traffic just posting weekly-imagine if I posted more often? :0)
    Your post is fairly clear for most people but I don’t know rss feeds. Thank you anyway. Even if this isn’t for me right now it should help many and who knows? I may be back and follow your steps someday :0)

    I had already used twitterfeed.com and have also used tweet this plugin for wordpress, both to no satisfaction of the way I WANT them to behave. twitterfeed only seemed to update 4 post and tweet this just dumps them all at once. as I get others posting more than a few updates to mind-flourish.net – roughly about the same time of day every day this creates a problem as I would like to have those spread out during the coarse of the day rather than just having the effect of having my twitter account flooded all at once every day. socialoomph seems to be one solution but that isn’t exactly hands free automation. if you have a solution for me, could someone PLEASE HELP!
