    Wondering if you can tag photos from tweets already posted.

  • Honestly, I didn’t know that you can upload multiple photos on Twitter. I thought it’s only applicable to some social media sites such as Google+. Thanks for sharing this information Cindy!

  • Hi Barbara! Yes, this is a new cool feature!

  • Definitely something worth trying 🙂

  • jennie_gram

    I tried adding multiple photos but it didn’t work 🙁

  • Nicole

    Tried doing the same. It didn’t work. Is it rolling out slowly to everyone?

  • Vivek G Maudgalya

    Super cool. !! Loved it as usual. Loved the photo sharing and tagging feature on Twitter. From past few weeks you introduced featuring a new app. Its a great idea for an app to make it big.
    Thank you so much.

  • Cindy, I’m especially excited about Facebook modifying the lookalike audience algorithm. I think this will be so effective for businesses who have solid email lists and who are using the Power Editor to efficiently run ads. This can really change the game for any business. Thanks for the post!
