June 2022 🐔

  • Instagram Reels: Post an Instagram Reel via the API. Reels are like TikTok videos where you can share a 60-second video and do some cool creative additions, such as stitch together and edit video clips, add music, apply filters, write captions, insert interactive backgrounds, and add stickers.
  • More Data On Posts: The Analytics, Comments, and History endpoints have been enhanced to return data on posts that were not sent via Ayrshare. These new enhancements are for Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
  • Approval Workflows: You may need an approval workflow to separate the content creator and the content approver. This is common practice to avoid mistakes, maintain consistency, and adhere to regulatory or compliance requirements in some industries. The Ayrshare API now natively supports an approval state for each post.
  • Twitter Threads Images: Twitter Threads now accepts multiple images per Tweet in the Thread. You can also specify that specific Tweets in the Thread will not have an image.

  • Alt Text: Add alt text to Twitter images and Facebook images and videos. Alt text is an accessibility feature used for additional user info and screen readers.
  • Twitter Thread Analytics: Analytics now supports Twitter Threads. If your Twitter post ID was sent as a thread, you will see an array of analytics data for all of the posts in the thread.
