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 what 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" under the "Share" menu for every item (the "Share" menu is just below the box with the price for an item).
When you click "Tweet," a popup will open that allows you to edit the tweet. Describe what makes the item worth tweeting about in 140 characters or less, and your message including a link to the item will be posted automatically to your Twitter account.
Is there an item you think a Twitter celebrity needs in their life? Tweet it at them! Ride their coattails to coat sales!
|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 might 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.|
Setting Up a Twitter Account
The first time that you click the "Tweet" 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" 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 click the link to tweet an item, then click your profile pricture and select "sign out." Super easy!
