Did you post something memorable? Something funny? Something newsworthy? Have an announcement to make? Why not make it the first thing people see on your X profile by pinning it to the top of the page? There’s no limit as to how long it can stay there. You can’t do it with someone else’s post or repost to your profile, but here’s how to pin one of your posts on X.

QUICK ANSWER

To pin a post on X, go to the post on your profile page that you want to pin. Drop down the menu next to the post and select Pin to your profile. If you already have a pinned post, selecting a new one will replace the old one.

Currently, this is not possible. However, X may introduce this feature in the future.

Apart from highlighting something you want everyone to know (such as a special offer at your business), you can also use it as an introduction to new followers or as a “virtual business card.” You can also use it to encourage people to follow you on Twitter by giving an idea of what they can expect from you.
