How to Pin Someone Else’s Tweet on Twitter

Twitter is a powerful platform that allows you to express yourself and share your thoughts with the world. One of its features is the ability to pin tweets to the top of your profile page, so that they are easily visible to anyone who visits your profile. However, what if you want to pin someone else’s tweet? Maybe you found a tweet that resonates with you or a meme that you want to showcase on your profile. In this article, we will show you two methods to pin someone else’s tweet on Twitter.

Method 1: By Quoting the Tweet

Twitter doesn’t have a native feature to pin someone else’s tweet. However, there is a simple trick that you can use to pin any tweet on your profile. This method works on both mobile and PC.

  1. Go to the tweet that you want to pin.
  2. Click on the “Retweet” button and select “Quote”.
  3. Add a comment as a quote. It can be as simple as a period or a comma.
  4. Press the “Repost” button to publish the tweet.

Next, go to your profile and click on the three-dot icon on the tweet that you quoted. From the menu, select “Pin to profile”. That’s it! You have successfully pinned someone else’s tweet on your Twitter profile.

Method 2: Using Free Third-party Service

If you prefer not to quote a tweet, you can use third-party services to directly pin someone else’s tweets to your profile. Here is how you can do it:

  1. Visit the Twitter tool website Twtools and click on the “Pin any tweet” option.
  2. Allow access to give permission to Twtools to pin the tweet on your profile. Take a look at what this application can do on your profile and if you are comfortable with it, authorize the app.
  3. Copy the link of the tweet you want to pin. You can do this by copying the link from the address bar if you are using a desktop, or by tapping the Share icon and selecting “Copy Link” on Android or iOS.
  4. Paste the tweet link on the Twtools app and click “Pin this tweet”. The selected tweet will now be pinned on your account.

You can remove the pinned tweet at any time by clicking on the retweet option and selecting “Undo Retweet”. This will not only remove the retweet but also remove it from your pinned tweets.

Revoke Access to Twtools

While Twtools is a secure and reliable service, it is recommended to revoke access once you have completed the pinning process for better security.

  1. Open Twitter on the web and click on “More” in the sidebar. Then, click on “Settings and privacy” and navigate to “Security and Account Access > Apps and Sessions”. Alternatively, you can use this link to directly open the Apps and sessions settings on Twitter.
  2. Click on “Connected apps”.
  3. Look for Twtools in the list of connected apps and click on it.
  4. Click on the “Revoke access” button to stop the app from accessing your profile. Note that revoking access will not remove the pinned tweet.
