It’s a known fact that the more people share your blog, the more popular it becomes. Apart from others sharing your blog posts, you also need to contribute your own quota to the growth of your blog by sharing your posts via the major social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pintrest and the rest.
I one of my recent publications, I shared the procedures to auto publish blog posts on Facebook, which some people find useful as it saves them time and effort. Today, I have decided to share how you can connect your blog to Twitter using Feedburner. i.e. how you can connect your blog’s feed to twitter so that whenever you publish a new post on your blog, it would be updated on your Twitter account automatically.

It’s free and owned by Google. Feedburner has a ton of great features, which the capability to auto publish your blog posts on Twitter is one.
