How to Use Bold and Italicized Text on Twitter

This brief overview will explain how to use bold and italics in your Tweets.

Before we get started there’s something very important to go over first – by changing the font to be bold or italicized, you’ll be making it unreadable for a lot of people who have enabled specific accessibility features. It’s probably best to use this sparingly and only within Tweets you’d consider very unimportant.

With that out of the way – let’s start!

  1. Head over to Twitalics (opens in a new tab/window). That’s where most of the action will happen.
  2. In the text box at the top of the page, enter the word(s) that you’d like to bold or italicize. Then select the actual change you want – bold, italics, blackletter etc. from the list of options below that text box.
  3. Below that, in a box with a green background, you’ll see the formatted text. Highlight that text and then right-click (ctrl-click if you’re using a Mac, long-press if you’re using a phone/tablet) it. Select Copy
  4. In your Twitter client, paste that text into your ‘Compose New Tweet’ window. The formatting will remain intact.
  5. Repeat the process if you want to format additional text. Enter it into the text box, select the formatting options, copy the newly formatted text and paste it into your Tweet.
  6. Ta-da!
