How do I auto add artist Twitter handles to pushes?

Push with replacement


One of the coolest things about TunePushr is the ability to auto-mention artists in your tweets. This is done using the Macro Manager. It works by looking for the artist name in the list of macros you have and replacing them with the text (Twitter username) that you specify.

Macros will automatically be replaced when the Macro Replace button is selected in the Push Composer (seen in the image above).

Below we’ll outline the 2 ways to do add macros into TunePushr.


1. Manually add Twitter usernames for replacement

Add a macro

This method will allow you to add macros one by one. Great for adding one on the fly if you realise it is missing.

  1. Go to the Macros tab in the in the box under the composer to open the Macro Manager.
  2. Click “Add”. A new line will appear with 2 blank boxes
  3. In the first box add the artist name as it is spelt in your track name
  4. In the second box, add their Twitter username. Don’t forget to add the @ symbol in front of it.
  5. Click Save.

Now, whenever a track with that artist name is pushed into the composer when Macro Replace is turned on, it will convert that artist name to their Twitter username.


2. Bulk import macros with a CSV file

This method will allow you to use a CSV file that you’ve created in a program like Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets or Apple Numbers to bulk import multiple macros at once.

  1. Download this template and open it in your spreadsheet program of choice. Ensure that you keep the header row.
  2. From the second row onwards, add your artist name in the first column, and their Twitter username in the second column. Don’t forget the @ symbol.
    Note: If you have an issue where your spreadsheet program is telling you “Function is not valid”. you need to highlight the replacement row and change the “Format” to Text.
  3. Save the file. Ensure that it’s re-saved as a CSV file.
    Note: You may need to use an “Export” feature if it’s not obvious when you try to save it.
  4. Go to the Macros tab in the in the box under the composer to open the Macro Manager.
  5. Click Import and browse your CSV file. Your CSV file should import immediately and add your macros to the Macro Manager.
