Connecting your Twitter and Tumblr accounts
In the app:
- Tap the account tab.
- Tap the gear icon.
- Choose "Linked accounts" and follow the directions.
On the web:
- Click "Settings" under the account menu at the top of the dashboard.
- Click the blog you want to connect to your Twitter feed on the right side of the page.
- In the Twitter section, click the Share on Twitter button.
- Click “Sign in with Twitter,” then enter your Twitter credentials and “Authorize app.”
- To toggle tweeting on and off per post, click or tap the blue Twitter bird on the post form. Blue bird = on. Gray bird = off.
- To edit your tweet just before publishing your post (on the web only), click on the Twitter icon to open the text field, customize your tweet, then click “Done.”
- To show recent Tweets on your blog, first make sure your Twitter and Tumblr accounts are connected by following the instructions above. Next, you’ll need to install a theme that supports the Twitter widget. Finally, configure your theme settings at www.tumblr.com/customize. There should be a Twitter section under Appearance Options where you can turn the widget on or off.
- If you're having trouble connecting to Twitter, go to https://twitter.com/settings/applications and click “Revoke access” next to Tumblr, then complete the connection steps above. If that doesn’t help, make sure you’ve enabled pop-ups on your browser.
- If your posts aren't showing up in your Twitter feed, assuming your accounts are connected correctly (as described above), tweeting could be delayed due to Twitter network issues. Also, make sure the Twitter icon in the post form is blue before you publish. (If it’s gray, that means you’ve turned off tweeting for that specific post.)
- We can't control how Tumblr content looks on Twitter. A Tweet of a photo post, for example, may or may not have an image preview attached, and who even knows how they’ll handle a chat post.
