Announcing New Flow Community Twitter Integration

 

The Flow Community has always thrived on its passion for Flow as a product and the comradery between fellow fans sharing their creativity on firsthand accounts on how Flow has enriched their business.

 

In our pursuit for community growth and connectivity, we are thrilled to announce the new integration of Twitter into the Flow Community!

 

Twitter integration into the Flow Community means introducing a quick Twitter access button that allows you to share any article, blog post, video, or forum response via your personal Twitter handle.

Some ideas on how to benefit from this functionality:

  • When you write a community blog, also tweet the link out for added views!
  • When you post an idea, tweet the idea to collect additional support and votes!
  • When you post a hard question, or share a solution, tweet it to share it with your wider network!
  • Follow the @MicrosoftFlow official Twitter account. Mention them when sharing from the community!

 

I hope you enjoyed this walkthrough of our newest community feature integration. If you liked what you saw today, tweet this article at the at the top left! Be sure to connect with me (@ATEEChang), or private message me directly on the community.

 

Looking forward to seeing all of your tweets! 😊

This is great. It would be cool if it automaticallly put the #MicrosoftFlow tag in for us as well as give us the option of including hashtags for the labels we picked for the post but this is a fantasic addition. 

Thanks!
