An Example of an Automated Tweet

We've worked hard over the past year or so to switch our automated tweets from boring text links to Twitter cards, which you can see an example of below.

If you have any suggestions for additional types of automated tweets, leave us a comment below and we'll look at adding more options to the Twitter settings page.

If you have a suggestion for any site features that you'd like us to cover in our new weekly site help stories, please let us know by posting in the comments below.
