How to put a PDF on Twitter
Add PDF links to your Tweets. (Jupiterimages/Photos.com/Getty Images)

The 140-character limit for Tweets can leave you with too little space to cover a topic. You can get round this by posting a Tweet with a link to a document that's already online, such as a PDF. Note that you can't upload a document from the storage on your own phone, computer or tablet. You can only link to a page that's already online. Twitter has an automatic web-shortening service which will make your link 20 characters long, even if it is shorter than that, leaving you 120 characters for the rest of your message.
