What’s This?

If you want to have a little fun connecting with your friends and spice up your engagement on your Twitter Timeline, you can tag people in photos on Twitter without depleting your character count in the Tweet. In fact, you can tag up to 10 people in a photo and still have all 280 characters to tweet with. This is also a great tip for community managers looking to increase interaction for their brands. When people are tagged on photos, they receive a notification letting them know they’ve been tagged. This brings attention to your tweet, and when executed correctly, will result in increased engagement.

Tutorial on tagging people on photos on twitter

1) Tap “Who’s in this photo?”

2) Type in a full name or an @ username, when the username come up, select it (you can choose up to 10 people)

3) Tap Tweet to post your message and photo(s). Your Tweet’s character count will update to include the URL for your photo(s).

Note: To remove the image file you selected, click or tap the x on the image thumbnail (or next to the file name). To remove a tag, tap the tag and then the backspace or delete button. You can only do this before you tweet the photo. You can’t remove tags from a photo once it is tweeted.

In your settings, you can adjust who can tag you, and notifications. And if you’re the one being tagged, you’ll get a notification. You can also send photos in direct messages. Click here for more information.
