Do you love to tweet? If so, you join hundreds of millions around the world who love to send out micro-messages, whether making a comment from their personal or business social media accounts. Most of us discovered the platform post-Facebook craze, reaching out in our overstimulated online social frenzy to do something with more brevity but continual, growing popularity. And while you are probably engaged in numerous social media interests, Twitter allows you a streamlined method for keeping your eye on a range of people and businesses that you might find relevant and valuable information. You can stay even more up to date on immediate news, and always be on top of what is trending—whether it’s a new record dropping, a big restaurant opening, or a controversial topic.
Twitter doesn’t always have to be about promoting your brand either, but you certainly can show off your creativity, those 140 characters notwithstanding. Today, there is so much more we can do from most social media sites when it comes to images, links, and attachments that will grab a lot of attention—and response. Now, if you love the world of 3D, you’ll enjoy blowing minds here as well with new integration features from Sketchfab. With native Sketchfab support you can look forward to checking out (as well as sharing) both 3D and virtual reality scenes from within tweets. And you don’t even have to leave your timeline to do so, according to the Sketchfab team—who along with their users, sound pretty thrilled about this latest integration themselves.
“It’s child’s play to embed the Sketchfab viewer in the world’s largest microblogging platform,” blogs Corentin from Sketchfab.
Indeed, this is really cool—and very simple. All you need to do is copy the Sketchfab link and then paste it into your tweet. After that, when a follower clicks on your inviting thumbnail, they will see the Sketchfab viewer whether working from their desktop or out and about on mobile. Sketchfab’s VR mode can also be ‘triggered’ this way, and the software is compatible with the following:
Sketchfab certainly does walk hand in hand with the world of 3D technology, and we stay busy following the latest from this popular viewing platform as they continue to expand—whether that’s supporting in-browser animation in interactive 3D, offering medical uses in VR, or even introducing us to the realm of 4D scanning.
Pointing out, quite correctly, that their platform has become the ‘de-facto media player for 3D and VR content globally,’ Sketchfab is obviously on a mission to support all of social media comprehensively—while offering their users a lot of fun and creative opportunities along the way. This latest integration is a great example of their dedication to allowing users around the world to both share and explore both 3D and 4D content, as they work with other platforms such as:
“These strategic partnerships make Sketchfab the best solution to bring more than a million 3D and VR experiences to the broadest audience. As VR interest continues to grow, Sketchfab continues to be one of the best tools to evangelize this interactive and immersive medium,” says Corentin.
Sketchfab has also released a note for Twitter users, however, that this latest integration may not work for 3D models that have already been shared on Twitter. That’s temporary though as they expect the issue to be fixed as Twitter’s web crawlers re-index the Card tag information.
