I changed to manual social media promotes because I felt that the automatic ones didn't highlight my top contributors. I was amazed to find that all the manual option really does is to give you the option of when you promote. There seems to be no way to get at what is going to be posted on any particular day. So day after day, I find myself deleting the automatic promotion and instead, creating my own. The Facebook one seems OK and after only including a Paper.LI logo for a few days, now picks up the lead story. But the Twitter one is totally random in choice of contributors and doesn't even make the most of 144 characters. It should be updating as you draft and edit each issue or at least when you publish.
When we go back to do our promotions, can we please see the text of each social media post before we send it and give us the chance to edit it, if you can't do a better job than at present, automatically.
