How does posting mask option work in Twitter poster?
Using 'posting mask' option in Twitter poster you can set the structure of your automated tweets.
As you know each RSS and most other content feeds consist of several standard elements. Read more
And each RSS item (article, product, video) has its title, description, link and some other elements.
When you make automated posts to Twitter you can choose what elements you wish to add to your posts. You use posting mask option with special tags:
%TITLE% - title of feed's article
%DESCR% - description of feed's article
%LINK% - backlink to original article.
By default the mask will look like this: %TITLE% %DESCR% - %LINK%. You can add additional symbols to post mask, change the order of post elements, remove any element if you don't wish to use it.
Here you can also specify hashtags which you wish to add to each of your automated tweets.
But we should remembers that Twitter limits the length of its tweets to 280 characters, including links and hashtags.
If you use all elements in posting mask (title, description, link, hashtags), first we make sure that your link fits the post limits, then we add hashtags and then the left number of characters from description.
So, don't use plenty hashtags in your posting mask if you wish to add as many content from article description to your tweets.
