Twitter rolled out expanded tweets to select partners this summer, allowing users to read article previews, watch videos and listen to music within the microblogging site — and bands and other content producers to better showcase their work. Now, it seems, bands have a whole new way to get interactive with the service: ThingLink has also integrated with Twitter, allowing users to share interactive images with the Twitterverse.
If you’re not familiar with ThingLink, it’s basically a service that allows brands, bands, etc to create images embellished with content like videos, images, audio etc. So, basically, one can create a kind of digital postcard representing one’s work. Blink 182 released one last year that served as an interactive album cover for Neighborhoods.
Bands: If you want to promote your next album or project via a ThingLink, you can sign up for free and start creating ASAP by uploading an image from Facebook, Flickr, your desktop, etc. You can upgrade to a paid plan if you want to upload more than 100 images and create more than one ThingLink.
