If you’re new to newsletters but you already have a Twitter following, we can imagine you’d want to hear how we’re going to help you make your newsletter a success.
Since the news broke that Revue has joined forces with Twitter, we’ve been hard at work planning the ways these services can combine to help you build your audience, and get your newsletter discovered. We’re excited to roll out some awesome updates that we think will improve the writer experience on Revue.
Kayvon Beykpour (Product Lead at Twitter) and Mike Park (VP of Publisher Products at Twitter) wrote a whole blog post on the subject. Here’s an excerpt:
“Many established writers and publishers have built their brand on Twitter, amassing an audience that’s hungry for the next article or perspective they Tweet. Our goal is to make it easy for them to connect with their subscribers, while also helping readers better discover writers and their content. We’re imagining a lot of ways to do this, from allowing people to sign up for newsletters from their favorite follows on Twitter, to new settings for writers to host conversations with their subscribers. It will all work seamlessly within Twitter.”
Will my newsletter automatically be delivered to all my Twitter followers?
No. We won’t email your newsletter issues to all your followers automatically, but you can choose to post each new issue to your timeline as you send it to your subscriber list. Learn how to do that here.
I have a Twitter account. Do I have to build a separate subscriber list on Revue?
Yes. At the moment, your Revue subscriber list and Twitter followers are separate. Here are some great tips for building that list.
I already have a Revue account, but I use my email to sign in. Can I connect my Twitter account so I can make the most of whatever integrations you guys build?
There isn’t an in-built way to do this yet, but don’t worry — we’ll make sure nobody is left behind!
