Release date: November 23, 2009

Through Twitter auto-post organizations may post a custom message to their Twitter account any time a donation is made through any of their checkout pages.

The Twitter auto-post provides two wildcard variables:
  • &firstname
  • &donation

The variables will be replaced by the donorís first name and the amount donated prior to being posted to Twitter.

Example:

&firstname donated &donation to my campaign. You can help too- http://tinyurl.com

In the above example if John donates $25 the following message will be posted to the organization's Twitter account.

John donated $25 to my compaign. You can help too- TinyURL.com - shorten that long URL into a tiny URL

Auto-Post also posts the following message to the Click & Pledge NOW account: click and pledge (ClicknPledgeNOW) on Twitter

John just supported http://yourOrganizationWebSite through ClickandPledge. You can help too!

We strongly recommend using URL shrinking sites such as TinyURL for shortening your organizationís web site address. Twitter has a character limit of 140 characters.
