Publishing charts on X (Twitter)

How to send a chart?

You can send charts that you’ve made in Macrobond directly from the application to X (Twitter). Here’s how:

  1. Start with the Macrobond document open and the chart you want to tweet selected in the analysis tree.
  2. Go to the File.
  3. Click Send to X.

Note: The first time you use this feature you’ll be asked to log in to your X (Twitter) account via the Macrobond application. See more under Connecting account.

  1. In this window, select the chart size and compose the tweet.

    Note:

    • You can create a default text or hashtag for your tweets. Just type the text you’d like to save and click the save icon to the right of to the text box.
    • It may be a good idea to select the Transparent as white option. X (Twitter) may show your tweet on canvases of different colors and making the transparent parts of your chart white is a effective way to ensure that it’s always legible.
  2. Click Send. You’ll get a notification from Macrobond that your tweet has been published.

My tweet is not longer than 280 characters but I can't send it?

X (Twitter) counts some glyphs as more than one character. See Counting characters.
