Congrats, you ran a successful Thunderclap campaign! Get ready for the grand finale – your message will be shared by all of your supporters simultaneously and will be seen across social media.
It's a key moment, and we want to make sure it goes off without a hitch. Here's a quick heads up of what the final social media posts will look like:
Will a photo show up in my supporters' published posts at the end of the Thunderclap?
It depends. Facebook typically pulls the image from your campaign page. Twitter tends to display an image pulled from your message link URL (more on this later) or no image at all. Remember, your image should not have a play button on it, as this is misleading to supporters and frowned upon by Twitter and Facebook.
What's the best way to get a photo to show up in my supporters' Twitter posts?
You can see the photo that Twitter will most likely post by pasting your message link URL into Twitter's validator tool. If the photo that shows up isn't the one you want, you may need to adjust your message link URL's Twitter card tags. Most posts do not contain an image.

What's the best way to get a photo to show up in my supporters' Facebook posts?
Facebook typically displays your Thunderclap campaign page photo in the final posts. In some cases, especially for campaigns with a message link that points to a Kickstarter page, Facebook will override that photo and display a video or a different photo instead.
On rare occasions, Facebook may display a blank image in the final posts. If that happens, please let us know via this form so we can quickly resolve the issue.
This is a typical Thunderclap Facebook post. The image is the one from the Thunderclap campaign page.
If your message link points to a Kickstarter page, Facebook may substitute a video in place of the campaign page photo.
