Video Script

To post updates to Twitter directly from Slack, you need to connect your Twitter account with Please Share. This is a simple process but it does involve a few steps.

First, navigate to one of the Please Share updates that has been posted in one of your company’s Slack channels. It doesn’t matter which one.

From the overflow menu, select Sign in to social accounts.

This will prompt a pop-up message to appear in Slack.

From the dropdown list in the pop-up window, choose Sign in to my Twitter account and select Submit. This will generate a temporary message with an authorization link.

Selecting the authorization link will take you to a Twitter web page where – by signing into your Twitter account – you can authorize Please Share to post updates to your Twitter account directly from Slack.

If successful, you’ll be taken to a confirmation page on the Please Share website.

Once connected, posting updates to your Twitter account from Slack only takes a few seconds.
