Photos increase response

Photos make a huge difference in getting viewers to engage. Twitter’s data scientist Douglas Mason found that tweets containing photos yield a 35 percent increase in the number of retweets.

PROTIP: Rackspace suggests a “universal” image size of 1600 pixels wide by 800 pixels high with a 160-pixel “padding” of nonessential elements of your graphic or image on the left and right margins.

  • The 2:1 ratio is good for Twitter, who suggest a 1024 x 512 pixel image. On Twitter’s iOS mobile app; images are cropped more significantly on the left and right borders and are displayed at a 1.75:1 ratio.
  • Facebook suggests a 1200 x 630 pixel image
  • Google+ seems to post images at 345 x 195 pixels
  • LinkedIn posts a thumbnail sized image at 180 x 110 pixels

Specific Tweet on AMP

Showing in a page a tweet of the most salient tidbit from that same article is good to do because of the meta associated with the tweet: retweets, likes, etc.

This example of a specific tweet uses Goggle's AMP (Accelerated Mobile) tag:
<amp-twitter width=486 height=657 layout="responsive" 
data-tweetid="711272963031470080" data-cards="hidden">
I found the amp-twitter code on a YouTube video. I found the data-tweetid on Twitter.com by getting the embed JavaScript. ## My most recent tweets This is displayed using script copied from "Embed" field on the Twitter website: ## News about Twitter * News about AMP at Search Engine Roundtable * http://blog.safe.com/2014/03/twitter-stream-api-map/ How to create a geo map of where tweets come from
