How to post a tweet using Siri in iOS 7

If you're running iOS 7 on your iPhone or iPad, Siri makes it easier than ever to post a tweet to your Twitter timeline without having to tap a single key on the keyboard. This makes for a great trick when you're wearing gloves or doing something where you can't completely concentrate on typing. Here's how to do it:

How to post a new tweet to Twitter using Siri in iOS 7

  1. Press and hold the Home button from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad in order to activate Siri.
  2. Now say Compose a tweet.
  3. Siri then asks you to dictate what you'd like it to say. Go ahead and so do.
  4. She'll ask you to confirm what you said and let her know you're ready to send it. Either say Yes or tap to confirm.

That's all there is to it. Siri will send your tweet on its way. As a side note, if Siri produces an error or tells you to link your Twitter accounts, make sure you're signed into your Twitter account in the Settings app.

Hmmm... I've never tried to post a tweet using Siri.
(That's dedication, Ally. Posting all the way "from across the pond".)

It would be nice if you can select the twitter name.

Just tried this… you can post to Facebbook the same way, by saying to Siri, "post to Facebook."

Did you delete the tweet later ? I'm trying to find it on your handle. LOL

My friend just grabbed my phone and tried this while my phone was locked and it worked. I don't think it should work while it's locked! Anybody can just grab your phone and post stuff for you without your authority.

You can mention someone in a tweet but they have to be in your address book and there twitter name has to be in there.
