@alamynews on Twitter have used one of my Live News images taken yesterday. I hesitate to ask but does that count as a sale?

Unfortunately not. Alamy News just use Twitter to show some of the pix that they have received that day - generally those featuring Aberystwyth!

 Alamy twit things out there to attract the buyers, whether that be news or stock. They are promoting them and us in doing so.

So doubt if a sale pops up (unless a newspaper sees the tweet and decides to use it as news).

It's the only way to fly.

there is a slight correlation between having a pic featured in the @AlamyNews tweets and that shot actually being used by a paper or online...

 

not 100%, but it does happen reasonably frequently

Thank you for that optimistic end to the day, I’ll keep my fingers crossed. 🙂

Been there a few times, and there today, but I don’t think I have ever sold one of the images that has appeared in the Twiiter feed, nor any in the group. Sorry to bring a negative end to the day :(

not everything that Alamy News tweet out sells...

not everything that they dont Tweet doesn't sell....

 

following their feed you do see, on many days,  reports of pix used in print that had been tweeted out in the days before...

 

beeing tweeted out means that at least one editor thinks the image is worth looking at, and that opinion is frequently shared by others
