Flickr Blog


It’s the first ever #TwitterTuesday! We want you to dig into your Flickr archives and find the hidden gems that you have uploaded in the past. We’re sure you’ll love the great photos that are just waiting to be rediscovered in your photostreams.

Our first #TwitterTuesday theme is My First Week on Flickr. It’s an easy one, to get us all started.

Whether your first week was all digital or analogue or a mix, we want you to share your most interesting, beautiful or moving shot from the past with us. From now on, we will announce a new theme every Tuesday and you have the rest of the day to pick your favorite shot from your photostream and share it with @flickr on Twitter.

The weekly selection of your entries will be showcased right here on the Flickr blog. Don’t forget the most important part is to use the hashtag #TwitterTuesday both on Flickr and Twitter when you share your photo so we can all enjoy our collaboration and build the selection of the week.

What’s the easiest way to share your photo, you ask?

If you haven’t done so already, go to your sharing settings and click connect to link your Flickr account with Twitter:

You’ll be asked by Twitter to authorize your account; click the Authorize button. After you have successfully linked your accounts, go to the photo you’d like to share and hit the share button .

Select Twitter and enter your tweet including the #TwitterTuesday hashtag. We will automagically append a shortened URL leading to your photo.

Find your photo in your photostream (our first theme might require a bit of scrolling), click the share icon, select Twitter, then type and send your tweet. Again, don’t forget to add the #TwitterTuesday tag.
