When a new post, custom post type, or page is created at my WordPress site, it contains title, content, excerpt, images/videos, etc. When clicking the ‘publish’ button on the right side of the post/page/custom post type. 
The new post/page/custom-post-types will be published on the website as well as on Twitter.
