Exporting charts to Twitter

You can send charts that you’ve made in Macrobond directly from the application to 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 Twitter”

Note: The first time you use this feature you’ll be asked to log in to your Twitter account via the Macrobond application.

  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. Twitter may show your tweet on canvases of different colors, and making the transparent parts of your chart white is a good way to ensure that it’s always legible.
  2. Click “Send”. You’ll get a notification from Macrobond that your tweet has been published.
