If you’ve connected your Twitter account with Revue, you can show your newsletter near the top of your Twitter profile where your followers can easily subscribe. Learn how to enable this feature.
But there are other ways for people to subscribe to your newsletter from Twitter without you needing to adjust a single setting.
When someone Tweets a link to a Revue profile or issue, people who see that Tweet in their timeline can subscribe right from that Tweet. Even better: If that person already has an email address linked to their Twitter account, all it takes is one click — no need for them to reconfirm their subscription via email.
If their email isn’t associated with their Twitter account, we'll guide them to your profile page to subscribe.
Generating ‘Subscribe’ buttons in Tweets
Tweeting Revue profiles
When composing a Tweet, add the link to your Revue profile at the end and Twitter will automatically generate a link preview that includes a ‘Subscribe’ button.
Tweeting Revue newsletter issues
If you want to show a specific issue of your newsletter instead, add the link to the issue you want to show and Twitter will generate a link preview of the issue. When someone clicks through to read the issue, a ‘Subscribe’ button will appear when they return to their timeline.
How do I control the display of the Tweet link preview?
The link preview will display helpful information about your Revue newsletter including the newsletter or issue title, newsletter or issue description, your Revue profile image or chosen issue image, and subscriber count.
To edit your newsletter title, description, or profile photo, log into Revue and navigate to your profile picture in the top-right corner. Go to Account settings > Profile. Then scroll down and select what you’d like to edit.
To edit your issue title, you need to change the subject line of that issue. Log in to Revue, then navigate to the Issues page. To edit the title of a draft, tap Edit. To edit the title of a published issue, tap the drop-down arrow to the right of the issue in question, and select Edit issue. In both cases, change the text next to where it says Subject, and the page will auto-save.
How do I control the image Twitter shows for link previews of newsletter issues?
If you have a specific image you would like to use as your thumbnail, you can upload that image when scheduling or sending a newsletter. The preview will use that selected image.
If you have not specified an image for the thumbnail, Twitter will show the first image used in the newsletter issue.
If the issue being shared doesn’t have an image, Twitter will show your Revue profile image.
Please remember only to use images that you have the right to use, in accordance with Revue’s Terms of Service.
How do I control the description used for link previews of newsletter issues?
If you set a preheader for that issue, Twitter will show the preheader in the link preview. Learn how to add a preheader to your issues.
If no preheader is set, Twitter will use the introductory text in the issue. It will truncate to 2 or 3 lines, depending on whether it’s being shown on a mobile or desktop screen.
If no introductory text is set, Twitter will use the first lines of text in that issue. It will truncate to 2 or 3 lines, depending on whether it’s being shown on a mobile or desktop screen.
How do I control the description used for link previews of profile pages?
Twitter will show your Issues Description underneath the title of your newsletter in the link preview. It will truncate to 2 or 3 lines, depending on whether it’s being shown on a mobile or desktop screen. You can edit your Issues Description by going to Account Settings > Profile > Issues Description.
What if I don’t want my subscriber count to be displayed?
To hide your subscriber count, go to your Revue account and navigate to Account Settings > Settings > Subscriber Count. Select Hide the number of subscribers on my profile page.
What do the link previews look like to people on Twitter who already subscribe to my newsletter?
If the email address a reader subscribed with is the same as the email address linked to their Twitter account, instead of a ‘Subscribe’ call-to-action button, they will see an option to read the latest issue.
