After just over 3 months of being open to everyone, we’re seeing a number of different file types being uploaded and shared on Twitter, with a clear leader: the humble PDF. So we thought it would be worthwhile restating the ease of which you can share PDFs on Twitter.
But first a look at the figures. Out of all files that have been shared on TwileShare, a whopping 50.7% are PDFs. To put that in perspective, Word documents are the next favourite with 12.7% of uploads, followed by the lowly Excel file at 2.5%. This goes to show how important the PDF format is when sharing information.
So, just how easy is it to share PDF files on Twitter using TwileShare?
- Sign in to TwileShare using your Twitter account.
- On the ‘Share a file’ page, choose the file you’d like to share from your hard drive.
- Write the tweet text.
- Click the ‘Share it’ button.
That’s it. TwileShare will upload your file, automatically generate a custom short URL and send out a tweet to your followers. We’ve been described as the best service out there for sharing files on Twitter and we aim to stay that way.
In fact, you could even share PDFs (or other files) on social networks, like Facebook or LinkedIn, by uploading the file to TwileShare and copying the handy short URL. Just remember to uncheck the ‘Post to Twitter’ checkbox so a tweet isn’t sent automatically.
