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 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.

      If someone doesn't want their art shared via tweet, is there a way to disable such from occurring?

      If you haven't already gotten an answer, since this is a year later I assume probably but anyways
      If you go under where it asks if you want critique, you can opt to hide share buttons :)
      fantastic news! thanks for making these display nicer on twitter!

      Is there any way I can submit a twitter post without leaving DeviantArt's interface?

      When will you make the twitter profile widget prettier?

      This is good news. I'm glad that twitter is being implemented better since the majority of my views come from twitter

      That is really neat and all, but really why isn't your focus on things that really matter, like how a huge percentage of deviantART users can no longer upload their work due to errors and incompatibility issues with the new submission page?
      What errors are you getting? I will look into it. :)

      Just 2 days ago, when I submitted and checked the PRINTS ENABLED option, and included my work to be featured in a group i'm in, it said that I can't have prints enabled when submitting to a group. This has never happened to any my submissions before. Very annoying as I enable prints for all my photos. Now I have to choose to enable prints and not submit to a group or not enable prints and submit to be featured in groups I am a part of.
