How To Represent A Tweet On Your PowerPoint Slide

Feature Image - How to represent a tweet on your Powerpoint slide

Time and time again, people have asked me how they can represent posts on tweets on a PowerPoint slide. I get why they would – it’s a great way to highlight what people are thinking about a particular subject. The “subject” could be anything from a company’s product to the latest hashtag taking over the internet. Either way, there’s been no real way to design a tweet in PowerPoint.

Until now, that is.

Before We Even Get Started

Since this tutorial is Twitter-themed, it’d be a good time for you guys to follow me on Twitter. I friggin’ love Twitter because it has less of that social media bloat that other social media platforms have. So yeah, follow me, tweet to me, and tweet your memes at me!

Introducing the ‘Design Your Tweet’ PowerPoint Tutorial

I’ll be clear from the get-go. This tutorial is REALLY straightforward to execute. You shouldn’t run into any problems at all.

The whole idea of this is to stay true to the way Twitter portrays one’s tweet on its platform. The user experience in Twitter is quite simple, so we’re going to have to implement the same components on our PowerPoint slide.

With all that said, it’d be a good idea to check out the tutorial below.

What This PowerPoint Tutorial Will Cover

The video will teach you how to:

  • Create and design a tweet in PowerPoint, similar to the tweets you see on Twitter.
  • Use simple shapes and icons to highlight the message beautifully.
  • Reinforce whatever theme you made with the appropriate fonts, colors, and text.
