How To Automatically Share Steemit Posts To Twitter Using IFTTT

This is a great video that will show you how you can automatically share your Steemit posts to Twitter. This is a wonderful way for you to start growing your Steemit following. You’ll gain more exposure by sharing to Twitter. In addition, it will also help your Twitter account grow by regularly sharing your Steemit content!

The best part is that you can set this up to run all on its own. You won’t have to manually paste links or share content. It will be done completely on autopilot using a cool platform called If This Then That or IFTTT. Therefore, if you don’t have an IFTTT account then check out this post on how to create an IFTTT account.

Once you have your account, watch this video. If videos aren’t your thing, then check out the transcript below to read all about how to automatically share your Steemit posts to Twitter using If This Then That.

One important thing to note is that the method in this video uses Streemian RSS feeds. However, unfortunately, Streemian RSS has been discontinued. Therefore, here is the RSS URL you will have to use.

Hey guys Spencer Coffman here. Today I’m going to show you how you can create a new applet using IFTTT or if this then that to automatically share your Steemit posts to Twitter. Okay, so all you need to do is make sure you have an if this then that account. You need to make sure you have a Steemit account, and you do make sure you have a Twitter account. If you have all of those things, then you can automatically share any post you make on Steemit to Twitter.

To get started, obviously, you’re going to sign in to your if this then that account. Then you’re gonna go to your ‘my applets’ and you’ll see the applets that you have active. You are going to click ‘new applet’. Okay, now, this is a confusing page because based on looking at this you are gonna think that you have to click ‘partner with if this then that’ however, you don’t. All you need to do to create your applet is click on the ‘this’ section.

Then you can search services or use some of these that are provided. Fortunately for us, ours is very simple. We’re gonna take the Steemit RSS feed and use that, which means we’re gonna click this RSS feed. Then we’ll do a new feed item because we want it to trigger every time. Then put in the feed URL so this is HTTP streamian dot com slash RSS and then your username so Spencer Coffman.

I will put a link to this in the video description below make sure you replace my username @spencercoffman with your Steemit username. Otherwise, you’ll end up sharing all of my content, which is fine. Once you put in your URL, you are going to hit ‘create trigger’ and then you’ll see that the word ‘this’ has been replaced with the RSS picture.

Now you’re going to click on the ‘that’ and then we are going to click over here on Twitter because we want it to automatically share to Twitter. So we have if an RSS feed post happens we want it to post a tweet. Now, this is important to choose ‘post a tweet’ and not ‘post a tweet with image’ because if you choose this one you will get a random image from the pic twitter dot com.

Okay, so choose ‘post a tweet’ then it will be prefilled in. Entry title and entry URL will be the title of your Steemit post and the URL of your Steemit post. If you like, you can add different ingredients so the author, content image URL, whatever you like. Just click it and it’ll pop up in there. I don’t need anything else, I’d like it to be simple. When that is done you hit ‘create action’ and it says ‘if a new feed item from my RSS feed here then post a tweet to my Twitter handle’.

Now if you haven’t connected Twitter to your if this then that account instead of it working automatically you will go through a permission screen that says if this then that would like to connect your Twitter account. You’ll need to put in your username and password and then allow if this then that to post to Twitter on your behalf.

If you have any questions put them down in the comments below. Once this is all filled out hit finish and you’ll see you’ve made a new applet and it’s on. There it is, so you can check. It usually it runs within a few hours. The status; created and never run. There it is. If we go back to the ‘my applets’ we’ll see it appear right here.
