    the “Twitter” button. Enter your Twitter username and Twitter password and then press “Verify Details” to connect your Twitter account to TweetDeck.

Press “Save settings” to save everything and close the setup window. WRITE YOUR TWEETS Before you do anything, first make sure that the account you want the tweet to appear on is activated on TweetDeck. If you only have one account currently set up, then you can disregard this. However, if you have multiple accounts set up on TweetDeck, you need to click on the tiny Twitter “t” and corresponding profile image at the top of the window so that it shows up in color, which activates that particular account. The other accounts that appear to be black and white will remain deactivated. Write your tweet in the input box provided, making sure it is no more than 140 characters. If it is longer, TweetDeck will automatically set it up so that readers are sent to a third party application to read the rest of the tweet. You can provide long links in the tweet. TweetDeck will automatically shorten your links using the Bit.ly URL shortener. 2 HOW TO SCHEDULE TWEETS USING TWEETDECK
