Joining the Dots – WordPress to Twitter to a Facebook Page

The Guild Website contains information and news from 200 towers, 8 Districts, and a number of different Guild Committees. That’s a lot of news – it needs to be intelligently shared through the appropriate social networks, so the intention is to automatically feed through posts from this website, to twitter, and on to the appropriate Facebook Page.

If you would like to set this up for your tower, District or committee, there are instructions online:

  1. To feed relevant website posts into your Twitter feed, sign up for twibbleio using these instructions. (Drop me a line so we can give you the RSS feed URLS you will need). Make sure you tick “Only Tweet new items” or you will start sending out old news!!!
  2. To feed tweets into a Facebook Page (not a GROUP though), use these instructions.

Once you have done this, why not go the whole hog and request to become a website correspondent? That way you can email your news into the website, then make yourself a cup of coffee while it powers across Twitter and Facebook as well……! Neat!

Christchurch and Southampton District is already up and running with this system. The website RSS feed https://wpbells.org/category/christchurch-and-southampton-district/feed is linked to @Candsbellringer on Twitter which goes onto the District’s FB page.
