[intro]In this Guide, you can learn how to connect your Wordpress Blog with a zap so that any posts your published are automatically tweeted on your Twitter account. Before you begin, you need to have opened a Zapier account by following the steps in this Guide.  [/intro]

[caution]Zap will not work with the Wordpress blog Feature on your EKM online shop. You will need to have opened an independent Wordpress blog to create this zap. [/caution]
