More Engagement Using Twitter Cards? Or Raw Links with Photos Attached?

Engagement – it’s what we’re all chasing after on social media.

Twitter’s “feed” is probably the most crowded out of all the social sites. With 319 million monthly active users, trying to keep up with the feed and get engagement is like drinking water from a fire hose!

In this podcast we’ll find out whether posting a photo with a link or using links setup with Twitter Cards results in more engagement.
