Social Media Quote | Version 4

Social Media Quote Authoring Guide

Learn how to quote social media content with Sophora's Social Media Quote add-on.

The Social Media Search enables editors to search in Twitter and transfer located contents via drag & drop into the text.

You can also paste post URLs into the Sophora copytext to transfer social media entries from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Vimeo, TikTok, GIPHY, Spotify and ScribbleLive.

The Social Media Search View

The Social Media Search view works like a normal search. You can search for posts by typing in the text field. Either click 'Search' or hit the enter key to perform the search.

Every result has an author, an abstract and an image if available. Hovering over a result with the mouse will open a tooltip with more details. The user can grow the tooltip to inspect the post and its attachments more closely.

To quote a post, the user can drag and drop the entry from the search into a copytext paragraph.

Right clicking on a result will open a context menu which allows the user to either open the profile of the author or the post itself in an external webbrowser.
