7. Image in a Tweet

Now that you have tweeted with a hashtag, try INCLUDING AN IMAGE in your tweet too: it's easy!

Start typing a tweet. There are different ways you can tweet. For example, there's a Compose button in the upper right-hand corner next to your avatar:


And if you are on your own home page, you will see the "What's happening?" compose box:


Either way works! When you start typing in the "What's happening?" box, the full compose box will open up, just like what you see when you click on the Compose button:


Including an image. To include an image in your tweet, just click on the Media button, and it will prompt you to choose an image from your computer to include. When you do that, you will see a thumbnail of the image, and your character count will have gone down by 24 characters. You can add include multiple images in a tweet if you want.


When you are done, click Tweet to publish.

NEXT STEP => You have now published a tweet with an image. What's next? A tweet with a video!


Sneak Preview: A Twitter tool you'll learn about later in the Bootcamp is Twitshot, which makes it even easier to choose an image from a linked webpage to include in your tweet. Because I like to include an image in a tweet whenever I can, this is a tool I really like.
