Common Questions

What happens if I try to import a post that is too long for Twitter or LinkedIn?
When importing, you will always have the chance to edit the post text before adding it to your Queue. 

If you are importing to a Twitter profile, we will check the post length (including any links and images), and warn you if the post exceeds Twitter’s 280-character limit or LinkedIn’s 1300 character limit. 

You can then edit the text so that it doesn’t exceed the character limit.

Why are some tweets too long to import?

When you’re importing existing posts from Twitter, into one of your Twitter profiles, you may find that they can’t be imported because they’re over the 280-character limit.

If you’re importing a tweet from someone else’s profile, we add “via @username” into the tweet so the original author can be credited. 

You can choose not to add these credits by changing the “Add Text Attribution To Imported Tweets” setting in the Settings page.
