    Hi Donna, are the images also showing in the Hootsuite feed or do I need to be in Twitter to see them? Thanks! Alli

    • Hi Alli – sorry I am no longer using Hootsuite, so I am not sure, but I know that initially pictures appeared as a link in Hootsuite and did not display inline on the Hootsuite dashboard – they may have changed that since then? I know that you can definitely post images to Twitter from a third party app (for instance, I use Buffer and that works) and you can definitely see them both in my history and on the Twitter feed. Have fun playing with it.

  • Thanks for this post! I am not aware that you can share images on twitter

    • You are very welcome – it’s becoming more and more popular, so it will be interesting to see what happens with it!

    On my business feed, the pictures are still showing up as links rather than imbedded images. Any ideas how to fix this?

  • Justin Staley

    How do I post an image to Twitter? I have looked everywhere!

    • Hi Justin – after you write your tweet, click on the Camera icon below left and upload a photo/image – it’s pretty easy – hope that helps.

      • Justin Staley

        That adds an image, sure, but not an inline/embedded image that can be seen right there in the tweet. I tried using Buffer to do this, but it wouldn’t work. Thanks.

        • Hi – not sure what to suggest – when I add them like that they usually show up by default in the newsfeed. Ocassionally they don’t but for the most part they do. But if you are talking about Twittercards, that will pull out an image from a blog post automatically if you have it set up. Here is a new post from Buffer that may explain it. http://blog.bufferapp.com/twitter-cards-guide

  • Why wont twitter show images on tumblr?

    • I’m not sure – I guess not every social platform shares directly from every other, but maybe Tweet Twitter and ask! I think that would be cool too.

  • Rezwana Akhi

    i am sharing the links of my article but twiter is not showing the images from the link not even the videos. may i know what i the problem?

    • You need to install Twitter cards – I think that sounds like the problem – sorry that is beyond the scope of me explaining here but if you google it you can find many explanations of how to do it.

      • Rezwana Akhi

        thank you so much 🙂

      • Tamekia Moon

        Thank you! I’ve sitting here for two days trying to figure why my image to blog post wouldn’t show up. So I googled and came across your site, very informative and still relevant a year later:)

  • Akhil Kumar

    I have linked my facebook page with twitter profile so that all facebook posts can automatically updated on twitter profile. But when I post an image on my facebook page it just appears as link on twitter. Is there a method to make the image visible on twitter?

    • Hi Akhil – to be honest Facebook posts to twitter will only show the link back to Facebook, so I don’t really recommend you do it. If you are going to be on Twitter these days you really need to only be on it if you can post (or schedule) posts directly in Twitter – and to be there to respond. Sorry I can’t help more!

  • RJ

    Twitter has now just started randomly including images whether I want them or not, it’s driving me crazy – I just want to post the goddam link!

    • That’s probably because since this article was written there have been Twitter Cards introduced which, when set up, will ensure that any article from a particular site pulls in an image (or information that you specify). Maybe that explains it. I like Twitter cards – but then I again I like having images with tweets! At least Twitter Cards lets you control which image appears if it is your site…

    or get a life? social is dead as of about half a decade ago?

  • a_ngua

    I’d like to show twit with pic/video on my tumblr (basically, whole tweet as it is), it always shows as link although “include media” option is checked 🙁

    I don’t read undated articles. Shows untrustworthy source that is too stupid to date articles. Waste of time.
