Free Tools for Professional Twitter Screenshots
You must’ve seen some really clean tweet screenshots on LinkedIn & Instagram. These screenshots are a good way to fill the gap in your content calendar and make the most of a high-performing tweet.
It gets me decent engagement on LinkedIn now and then:
So, I’d suggest you do the same. Even if you don’t have something valuable to share someday, this repurposed content will keep your branding journey in its momentum.
Below, I’ve shared a list of tools that will help you create these tweet style posts easily.
Before I came up with my own all-in-one personal branding tool, Poet.so was my go-to free tool. It creates decent tweet screenshots within seconds. There are no watermarks, you can import the tweet by URL, and it will turn it into an image. There are few options to change the styles and size of images.
It won’t let you edit the text, add elements or customize it with your own colors. You can’t import Twitter threads too. It works for just a single tweet and will let you download it only in PNG format. I wish there were more templates in it.
So, here comes my current favorite. I built this tool, keeping my own content repurposing needs in mind. It offers pretty much everything that Poet.so failed to (and more!).
I’ve added 100+ templates tweet-style templates to it. You can import tweets by pasting links. It let you edit the text as well. Not just that, it allows you to upload images, add elements, change colors, and all other editing features. You can easily swap templates without losing your text on them.
What’s more, it will let you download in two formats, i.e.,
Animated text and GIF support are coming up too.
Since ContentDrips is a full-fledged social media content tool, there are other types of templates too.
ContentDrips has also got a feature named Twitter Thread to Multiple Images. It will turn your Twitter thread into a carousel post for LinkedIn & Instagram.
TweetPik is a more advanced tool that lets you screenshot tweets but also records them as well in case of video tweets. It gives you APIs and automation features too, such as with Zapier.
You’ve lots of options here, different dimensions and colors for designing. You can’t customize the text in it but you can upload custom backgrounds in its PRO version. It creates some really clean good quality screenshots.
Here’s another from my former favorites.
One of the best things about this tool is that it automatically brings your last few tweets. You don’t need to add the URL of the tweet. There are many different designs and color schemes you can choose from.
It also offers APIs which you can use to automate the process. But there are some drawbacks. For example, you can’t edit the text, add images, add backgrounds, etc. And that’s probably because it is just a tweet screenshot tool.
All of these tools have free and paid plans. I’ve reviewed the free versions of the four tools mentioned above. With paid plans, you’ll certainly get more features. I encourage you to explore these yourself and say goodbye to content-less days.
Repurpose your content and stay consistent. Distribute it on more channels to make the most of each content piece you create.
Hoping this blog post helps you turn your tweets into good-looking posts!
