Image Editing Beta

You can now add a colorful frame to your images in Typefully. This will help you add your "brand" and personal style to your tweet media.

This is a beta, and we're excited to see how Typefully users will customize their image attachments.

We've also made it available as a standalone app you can install on your phone: tweet.pics.

Here's how to edit images in Typefully:

Quote the first tweet of your thread

It's good practice for long threads to end them with a reminder to like and retweet the first tweet in order to maximize engagements.

Click the new "quote" icon in Typefully's editor bottom toolbar to automatically quote the first tweet of your thread.

This is a Pro feature, here's how it works:

Pinned drafts

Pin any draft — even multiple ones at the same time — to make sure they stay on top of Typefully's sidebar.

This is great for important tweets and threads that you're working on.

Automatic thread making

Typefully is now much smarter.

When you paste text from Notion, Word, Apple Notes (and many more sources) it removes useless formatting, it expands links, format lists with nice bullet points, and more.

You'll also see a new Make thread notification that will trigger our smart splitting behavior.

So you can now easily import any text in Typefully and transform it into a thread in a single click.

Typefully Profiles

The new Typefully Profiles turn your tweets and threads into a beautiful blog.

We're very excited about Typefully Profiles.

  • You can showcase your best writing
  • They're perfect as the link to put on your Twitter profile
  • They give you an RSS feed from your threads and tweets
  • They're basically zero-setup blogs

Minimal Twitter integration

Minimal Twitter is a browser extension that removes distractions and clutter from Twitter.

We partnered up with Thomas from Minimal Twitter, so you can start writing a thread on Twitter and continue on Typefully.

Install the extension (available for Chrome, Firefox, and Edge) and then start writing a thread to see the new Continue thread in Typefully button, right under the Twitter composer.

iOS shortcut and Raycast support

This one is for power users.

You can now create new drafts with a URL parameter, like this: https://typefully.com/?new={your content here}.

The content will become the text of a new draft. It has to be URL-encoded, and if we find 4 empty newlines, we'll split the text into separate tweets too.

iOS Shortcut

The first use case we've found is an iOS Shortcut to start a new Typefully draft. It's really useful when you start writing on Twitter and you want to continue in Typefully.

You can try the shortcut here, and check out this video demo too.

For the Raycast users out there, you can create a Quick Link to start a new Typefully draft from anywhere. Here's how to set it up:

And here's a video demo.

New writing experience and video support

We're been working hard on a new thread writing experience in Typefully.

The new editor is more powerful, media-rich, and built for focused writing.

High-Fidelity Preview

You don't need a separate thread preview anymore.

Just switch to High-Fidelity to see how your thread will look like on Twitter, and keep writing.

Focus Mode

The revamped Focus Mode will help you focus on the writing, without any distraction.

It's our favorite way of writing long threads.

More keyboard shortcuts

There's so much more your can do without touching your mouse now.

Check out the new shortcuts list here: https://help.typefully.com/shortcuts

Video Support

We're excited to finally bring videos in Typefully. Just drag any video inside the editor to add it to your tweets or threads.


This update prepares Typefully for big features and improvements we have in our roadmap.

Dec 14, 2021

Auto-retweet and auto-plug your threads

We've launched 2 new features that will help you get more engagements from your tweets and threads: auto retweets and auto plugs.

Auto Retweet

You can now schedule retweets for your new threads based on the engagements they get. This is very useful if you want to make sure your threads are seen among different timezones, and to boost their engagement over time.

CleanShot 2021-12-14 at 10.38.55@2x.png

Auto Plug

It's very hard to tell which threads will go viral, and it only makes sense to plug your website or newsletter in the best-performing ones.

We've made it easy to do so by letting you set up "auto plugs" that will be attached to your threads only if they reach certain thresholds.

CleanShot 2021-12-14 at 10.39.29@2x.png

More improvements

We've improved the scheduling interface to be more intuitive and useful. You can quickly select the next free slot in the queue, or pick the best time based on your analytics.

CleanShot 2021-12-14 at 10.37.45@2x.png

You will also notice some improvements in the recently added threads sharing functionality.

Nov 29, 2021

Multi-account support is here

You can now add and manage multiple Twitter accounts in your Typefully account.

Write threads, schedule, and publish on all your Twitter accounts, seamlessly.

Just click on your avatar in the top right corner of the app to add your other Twitter accounts.

You can also easily move drafts between accounts.

Share & Unroll your Threads

We have exciting news for creators using Typefully.

  • You can now share your Typefully drafts with anyone to get feedback before publishing.
  • Attach the same link to your thread and it will show a beautiful "unrolled" version when it's published.

Check out this thread to see a live example. The first tweet links to the unrolled version.

Here's how it works:

What's the best time to tweet?

Here's a question for the ages: what's the best time to tweet? Every website and service gives a different answer, and we've been thinking about this a lot.

We're excited to introduce a new Typefully feature to discover when you get the most engagements, which is a great proxy of when it's a good time to tweet.

It's just a first step, and we're going to improve this a lot, so feedback is welcome (you can DM us or drop an email.

Open your Typefully Grow tab and you'll find the new charts. We even show a little "+" button on each daily chart to quickly add a suggested slot to your tweeting schedule.

ALT descriptions for your images

To make your images accessible to more people, including those who are blind or low-vision, you can now add a special image description called alt text.

Good image descriptions are concise and descriptive, helping people understand what’s happening in an image.

We're very excited to finally bring this accessibility feature to all Typefully users. Just click on the new +ALT button in the thread preview to write and add your descriptions.

Typefully gets faster ⚡️

Before working on our packed roadmap of features, we've taken some time to make both the Write and Grow tabs much faster.

The editor is now super snappy, even when writing long threads with tons of tweets, and the Grow tab charts are now equally fast, with shorter loading times.

Enjoy a faster Typefully, and get ready for new features and improvements that are coming soon.

New Typefully "Grow" Tab

A new tab to grow on Twitter

We've introduced a new Grow tab to help you understand your account's performance. It's part of the Typefully Pro subscription.

We didn't just stop at obvious metrics, but really decided to understand what's the best way to grow on Twitter, and create the best tool to help you accomplish that.

main.png

You'll find for example a unique Profile Conversion Rate chart we've created. We constantly check how many new people are following you and compare it to the number of profile clicks that your tweets are getting and create this synthetic metric to help you understand how well your profile is doing.

conversion.png

We'll also always show you how your last tweet or thread is doing, and you'll be able to check the same metrics for all your tweets, even those not published with Typefully.

Change your Typefully accent color

To help you share beatiful screenshots of the new Growth charts with your audience, we've added a new setting to change the whole app accent color to fit your brand.

More improvements to the Editor and UI

We also revamped the Editor interface a lot, and we've continued working on it to make your writing experience flawless. You'll find a better toolbar and general refinements to the experience.
