Tagging users on Twitter is another way to mention someone in a tweet. As we know, Twitter limits the number of characters you can use in a tweet so tagging has the advantage of not using extra characters in the text box. You can only tag a user in a tweet that contains an image. It’s not possible if the tweet includes a video or GIF.
Once the presentations have been made, we will show you how to tag people on Twitter through the social network itself and with Metricool.
How to tag users on Twitter
Tagging a user on Twitter is simple. Follow these steps to tag a user in a Tweet with a photo easily:
▶️ Open Twitter and click on ‘Tweet.’
▶️ Type the text and add the images (up to 4).
▶️ When you add the first image, you will see the ‘Who’s in this photo?’ option at the bottom.
▶️ Search the user you would like to tag by their name or username and select.
▶️ Once tagged, click ‘Done’ and follow the usual steps to post a tweet.
The tweet has been posted with the users you wanted to tag. Are there any limitations regarding tags on Twitter? I am afraid so.
❌ You can only tag a maximum of 10 users per tweet.
This limit is by tweet. It does not depend on the number of photos attached. This means that if you add more than one image to the tweet, you won’t be able to tag more than ten people.
❌ There are users you won’t be able to tag in your tweet.
On Twitter, each user decides whether to allow other users to tag them. Even if you follow each other, the other user has the option to disable the tab and you will not be able to tag them.
The same happens with those who have a private account or have blocked you on the social platform.
