Twitter Media - how to add URL for an image?

I assumed 'Media' = a photo.  And the photo would be posted to Twitter as a native photo. 

 

What inputs does the media field (Twitter action) accept? 

 

I tried adding a URL for an image, but this was not accepted.

Re: Twitter Media - how to add URL for an image?

Thanks Christian. 

Yes, I'd like to add an image in content. 

The example you provided gets content from a SharePoint site. 

What action would I use for an image URL (sourced from an RSS feed)?  Such as: 
https://www.consein.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Power-Automate-Logo-JPEG.jpg

 

Perhaps Power Automate doesn't support this.

Re: Twitter Media - how to add URL for an image?

Hi @n1cks,

 

The Media field accepts a binary type of data.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/twitter/#post-a-tweet

So if you put the data into it, you should put in a string of binary, the format should be:

{
  "$content-type": "image/jpeg",
  "$content": "base64code"
}

 This is an example that post a picture form a URL provided by @ChristianAbata:Annotation 2020-05-04 130758.png
