I was scrolling through Twitter a couple weeks ago and came across this Tweet from St. Louis Post-Dispatch sportswriter Derrick Goold.
Test-driving a new way to deliver links to coverage, especially via Instagram. Look, Twitter does not produce as many clicks on stories as you might think (insert "read the paper"). Shocker, I know. Wondering if this is more accessible https://t.co/G9eHd2w9MO @stltoday #Cardinals— Derrick Goold (@dgoold) July 25, 2019
I was intrigued, but I was on vacation so I gave it a screenshot and tucked it away to explore later. Finally, got a chance to check it out and I have to say, it’s a pretty nifty tool.
In a matter of minutes I created a Linktree account, added some links and swapped out the link in my personal Instagram bio.
For high school media staffs, this is a great way to be able to reference links in Instagram posts and then have readers go to your Linktr.ee link in your bio to easily find the content. You could use this for everything from photo galleries and video categories to breaking news and polls.
You can get your own Linktr.ee account here.
