How to #Dtag

  1. Type your #Dtag (up to 280 characters) into the compose box at the top of your Home timeline, or click the #Dtag button in the navigation bar.
  2. You can include up to 4 photos, a GIF, or a video in your #Dtag.
  3. Click the #Dtag button to post the #Dtag to your profile.

To save a draft of your #Dtag, click the X icon in the top left corner of the compose box, then click Save. To schedule your #Dtag to be sent at a later date/time, click on the calendar icon at the bottom of the compose box and make your schedule selections, then click Confirm. To access your drafts and scheduled #Dtags, click on Unsent #Dtags from the #Dtag compose box.


#Dtag source labels

#Dtag source labels help you better understand how a #Dtag was posted. This additional information provides context about the #Dtag and its author. If you don’t recognize the source, you may want to learn more to determine how much you trust the content.


  1. Click on a #Dtag to go to the #Dtag details page.
  2. At the bottom of the #Dtag, you’ll see the label for the source of the account’s #Dtag. For example,  “#dactag for iPhone,” “#dactag for Android,” or “#dactag for Web.” 
  3. In some cases you may see a third-party client name, which indicates the #Dtag came from a non-#dactag application. Authors sometimes use third-party client applications to manage their #Dtags, manage marketing campaigns, measure advertising performance, provide customer support, and to target certain groups of people to advertise to. Third-party clients are software tools used by authors and therefore are not affiliated with, nor do they reflect the views of, the #Dtag content. #Dtags and campaigns can be directly created by humans or, in some circumstances, automated by an application. Visit our partners page for a list of common third-party sources.
