How to Share Podcast Clips to Twitter Fleets
1. Create Your Podcast Clip
If you want to share your podcast on Twitter Fleets, you’ll immediately run into the same problem as every other visually-based social media platform… how can you easily share audio content? The best way is by converting your podcast clips into engaging video content.
With Wavve, you have everything you need to leverage your podcast’s audio content into animated videos perfect for social sharing. To create a podcast clip, all you have to do is log into or sign up for a Wavve account.
2. Choose a Vertical Design for Your Video
Once you’re in, you can start by creating your Wavve video design (or choose one of our 5 designer-made templates that were built to drive social media engagement). When you use Wavve, you can easily size your video so it’s optimized for your chosen social media platform. For Twitter Fleets, you’ll want to select the vertical aspect ratio.
3. Trim Your Podcast Audio
Videos on Twitter Fleets can be no longer than 30 seconds in length. While you’re designing your Wavve video, make sure you trim your podcast audio so that it’s 30 seconds max. Check out this video tutorial for information on how to easily trim your audio within Wavve.

5. Edit Your Fleet
Once you’ve uploaded your podcast clip, you can use the text editor to add media to your video. Right now, Twitter Fleets allows you to add text and emojis to any post with an editor that will look very familiar to anyone who’s ever used Instagram Stories. Simply tap the screen to bring up the keyboard and toolbar.
