We're excited to announce that we just implemented enhancements to the way deviantART links display on Twitter, giving you and your artwork more prominence and exposure!

We're always looking for ways to give artists better exposure -- both on deviantART and across the web. Not only do these changes give artists a bigger presence across Twitter by allowing them to reach a bigger audience, but they also encourage proper attribution.



What's New

  • Artwork will appear larger on Twitter.
  • Titles and descriptions of artwork are now automatically included!
  • Links to Profiles, Groups, Favourites, Galleries, Collections, Journals, and Sta.sh items will now display inline! When profiles are shared, it pulls in your deviantID and bio.
  • Tweets including deviantART links are now eligible to show up in more places across Twitter, including Twitter's "Discover" page, their automated emails, and when embedding Tweets on other sites.
  • In Twitter search, deviantART links are now eligible to show up automatically expanded, giving your artwork more prominence.
  • Artwork will now show up on mobile devices and tablets!


Add the Twitter Widget to Your Profile Page

    Premium Members, if you have the Twitter Widget installed on your Profile Page, your Twitter username will be included whenever someone shares your artwork, Journals, or profile, allowing viewers to easily follow you.


    Remember to Use the Share Buttons

      Remember: Using the share button on deviation pages is an easy way to share content and ensures that the artist will be properly attributed with a link back to the original artwork.


      Plus: Enlarged Facebook Thumbnails


      As of a few weeks ago, Facebook implemented a change which increased the size of thumbnail images in the News Feed from 90x90 pixels to 154x154 pixels. We've adjusted the way these thumbnails display on Facebook, taking advantage of the bigger size, giving your artwork a bigger presence on your friends and fans' News Feeds.

      Thanks to aMoniker, who was the developer on this project.

      The Twitter widget is a premium feature only, meaning you need to be a premium member to use it. I don't know if there's a way to auto update your Twitter when you upload on DA, but when you post something to Twitter, it auto updates the Twitter widget.

      Hey, kinda unrelated to Twitter, but did you know Pinterest has Deviantart links blocked as spam? I can never share a deviation from anyone on here because people have reported dA enough to be blocked from all of Pinterest. I tried writing them about it, but heard nothing. Maybe you guys should do it. Pinterest is getting huge so I'd hate to not have dA get it's dues there. The issue MAY have started with the fav.me url's that you can copy and share, they tend to look like those scam shortened url's that ads use to hide their source. Anywho, heads up. :)

      Could you give me an example of a deviation that Pinterest is blocking as spam? I pinned a deviation yesterday and it worked fine. And just now. DeviantART also has a Pinterest page and we pin stuff all the time! :aww:

      Just tried two 'fav.me' urls (under the 'Details' on the rightside of a Deviation's page) and the message "users have reported that this links to spam or other inappropriate content" And I had used fav.me links from various artists.

      Also, is there any chance in the future of Pinterest and DeviantART working together on their website verification system? Right now the only way to verify a website is to paste a code into your own website. So for third party websites like our pages, we do not have access to that.

      Actually, Pinterest has blacklisted all redirecting URLs -- not just deviantART's. They do the same for bit.ly and tinyurl links. When posting to Pinterest, you should use the permanent link rather than the fav.me links.

      Ah, well that makes more sense and is better to hear than thinking that a bunch of folks went and reported the fav.me links as spam, haha.

      They do? :noes: When did that happen? I've shared things from DA on Pinterest quite recently with no issues at all. :confused:
