For a step-by-step in-system walkthrough, log into your Libsyn show, then click here.
Setting Up Twitter OnPublish
To get started, log into your Libsyn Dashboard and hover over Destinations, then hit Add New.
Locate Twitter in the list, and hit Add.
You will be asked to log into Twitter. Log into Twitter using the handle you ultimately want Libsyn to publish to on your behalf. You will also be asked to approve permissions for the Libsyn App to be able to post to Twitter on your behalf.
You will be redirected back to Libsyn where you can choose what link gets shared when an episode is published.
Libsyn has a podcast directory that showcases shows hosted by Libsyn. This directory can be found here:
Choosing the directory link option will link directly to your episode in the Libsyn podcast directory.
When you create an episode inside Libsyn, you can set the permalink for the episode. This can be a custom link, or even link to your Libsyn podcast page. If you choose episode permalink, that is the URL that would get shared.
Each media file published has a download URL that can be used to access the media file directly. Choosing this option will share that download URL.
Once you’ve set your published link, hit Save to save your destination. Going forward, any episode published in Libsyn can be sent to Twitter.
Publishing to Twitter OnPublish
Publishing an episode to Twitter is the same as publishing an episode any other time. However, there are some additional options made available to you.
When creating a new episode, a new option for Social Destination Custom Text will become available. Here, you can enter a Tweet to appear with your post. Note there is a character count that will update as you type, it will turn red when your message gets to long. It accounts for the fact that a URL will be added and adjusts appropriately.
Scheduling with Twitter
When scheduling an episode, the Twitter destination can have a time for release fully customized just as any other destination.
