    Okay so what's the deal?! Sorry, trying to cool down but am surprised with the lack of consistency with the issue I'm having. So the hashtag feed on twitter, plenty have pics, links, etc. Some of mine don't show up with certain hashtags, while others do. So what's the deal?

    Is it the number of followers? Link you put in? Using ***********? The kind of pic? Am I even asking the right question?! Am I also very tired and stressed out? (Yes to that last one)

    Thanks guys!

    Yes, you're asking the right questions.

    Tweets don't show up in Twitter search mostly because they contain certain urls. If an account is new this happens more frequently, more like with every account.

    Just test it. Post text tweets with no url in them, those will show up for sure.

    There's no real workaround. You can try to watermark your images with the url, if you're posting image tweets or post tweets with CTA and put the url in your website field. Nevertheless none of these solutions will bring the amount of clicks what a live link in a tweet can.

    @HoNeYBiRD - Hey sorry for the delay, but thanks for the help! But yes, it would make sense to have a certain number of followers \ aged account before you can start posting links... Just wish it was more consistent, frustrating as that is. But the one's that get through, not all of them granted, definitely get a better response rate \ feedback... Though anything more than nothing, for me at least, is great!
