How do I auto-post campaigns to Twitter?

There are two ways to auto-post your campaigns to Twitter:

  • Connect your list(s) to Twitter: This is a more traditional approach to automatically post your campaign to Twitter once the campaign is sent. This set up is easy to use and you only need a Twitter account. The auto-post message cannot be customized.
  • Set up a Zapier connection: This option requires a Zapier account and offers a little more flexibility as the tweet can be customized.

Connect your list(s) to Twitter

  1. Go to the “Lists” page and click the dropdown next to the list you want to auto post campaigns to Twitter for.

Set up a Zapier Connection

  1. Click here to use the "Tweet along with new campaigns on ActiveCampaign" Zap.
  2. You will be asked to log into your Zapier account if you are not logged in already.
  3. Follow the steps in Zapier for setting up your ActiveCampaign Trigger. You will be asked to enter your ActiveCampaign API URL and Key if your ActiveCampaign account is not yet connected to Zapier. You can retrieve this information by going to My Settings > Developer in your ActiveCampaign account. Click "Yes, Continue."
