How to Automatically Publish Facebook Posts to Twitter

I only recommend doing this if you don't like using Twitter. This way, you at least have a presence and can squat your handle/brand name too. 
  1. Go to www.facebook.com/twitter.
  2. Below Edit Settings, click to check the box next to the things you want to share on Twitter.
  3. Click Save Changes.

    Tools for Creating Social Graphics

    • Canva – Offers templates for facebook cover photos, Instagram sized squares, Pinterest etc. Just select your desired format. Pretty easy to work with. FREE if not using stock images, but there is a PRO paid plan too. 

    • Bookbrush.com – Made for authors. Simply upload your book cover and it will be inserted into flat lays and other fun templates automatically. Free for limited features or a yearly paid plan is available, which is what I have. You can use code TARA15 for a 15% lifetime discount (I do NOT make any affiliate fee on this, just happy to offer the savings).
