Tweet an Item
Bonanza offers you the opportunity to get your items noticed on one of the web's fastest growing social media platforms -- Twitter. Here's the least you need to know about sending items to Twitter.
Publishing Items to Twitter
After you've hooked up your Twitter account to Bonanza (see below), whenever you visit an item you'll see a link labeled "Tweet It" under the "Actions" menu for every item (the "Actions" menu is just below the description text for an item).
When you click "Tweet It," a dialog will open that asks you "What makes this item so interesting?" Describe what makes the item worth tweeting about in 120 characters or less, and your message, plus a link to the item, will be posted automatically to your Twitter account.
|Your Twitter followers want to read something interesting or provactive. If you tweet an item more than about once per day, or if you don't provide a message to your followers about why you tweeted the item, your Twitter followers are view your item tweets as spam. Twitter is an extremely powerful promotional tool, but to wield it wisely, put some thought into what would make the item interesting to others before your post the item to your Twitter account.|
Setting Up a Twitter Account
The first time that you click the "Tweet it" button under an item, you'll be brought to a login screen that allows you to enter in your Twitter user name and password. After verifying that the name and password are legit, we'll save your info so that any time you click "Tweet it" in the future, your message and a link to the item will automatically be posted to your Twitter account.
If you decide you want to unlink your account (or if you change your Twitter password), you can visit the "Account Settings" -> "Cancelation Options" page, located in the upper left corner of the "My Bonanza" page. There will be a link to unhook your Twitter account there.
