ThingLink Options

Using ThingLink
ThingLink is a powerful tool for visual annotation, and you'll want to fully explore all the options available to you as you build your project.
  1. The most versatile type of tag (annotation) in ThingLink is the text+media tag, which allows you to combine text, images, video, links, and even background audio.  The text+media tag offers eleven different layouts, too.
  2. ThingLink also has description or title tags, which display only text.
  3. A text label tag provides hover-over text (maximum six lines).
  4. Additional types of tags include tour tags, poll tags, and more.  See the full array on the Twitter support page.
