    Nice to hear about this. I will try tweetfooter.

    This is a really cool tool. I love the fact that your Twitter feed will continually update, regardless if the email was sent weeks or months ago. This tool allows you to attract even more clicks when a person opens up your email.

    This sounds really great and I’m going to try it out. I’m just wondering if anyone thinks there could be spam filter implications? I would hate for my emails not get through because of some restriction on this type of feature.

    • QuickOnlineTips says:

      Its basically a simple html image code, so unless you email client is blocking images, you should see it. I don’t see why any spam filters should block it.

    Will it update when you send out a new tweet if you selected latest tweets? Just tried it and it wasn’t working!

      Doesn’t update for me either – I’ve tweeted @twitfooter – Did you find a solution?

      After Twitter Oauth login, you have to select “Show latest tweet” and then update the new code in your email signature. Works for me.

      • Rolo says:

        I’m using Outlook 2007 and I couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t updating, even when re-inserting my signature.

        Playing about with it, I have found that by going into signatures, selecting the sig in question (I have several), clicking into the edit sig area and then clicking save, this updates the tweet in my signature for the next time I use it.

        However, test emails I have sent to Outlook accounts and gmail are still displaying the same tweet they were before, so the claimed auto-update isn’t working for me. I’ll be interested to know if this is the same thing Cara is seeing. Perhaps it’s a cache issue?

        • QuickOnlineTips says:

          Its basically a linked image. See our image code.

          So if your client is caching images, I guess it would not update.
