Twitshot, a website that automatically extracts images from pasted links and attaches them to tweets, today launched an iOS app that makes it an invaluable tool for anyone that uses Twitter.
A Twitter study in 2014 showed that simply attaching an image to your tweet results in a 35 percent increase in retweets on average, so attaching images whenever you can is a good way to get attention.
Twitshot makes this a no-brainer; its Chrome extension adds a button to your browser for instantly sharing a tweet with the link to the page you’re on now, as well as a photo extracted directly from the page.
With its new iOS app, you’re able to use iOS 8’s share sheet to seamlessly create a tweet with an embedded image from your iPhone or iPad without needing to go through the hassle of downloading images for sharing.
This has quickly become my go-to way to share links to Twitter, since it makes it so easy to share images and links directly in seconds.
