Info: This feature requires Enterprise Server version 9.1 or higher.
Creating a Tweet from Enterprise starts by creating a Dossier. This will hold the text that you are going to tweet and contains the tools for publishing the text to Twitter.
This article describes how to use the tools in the Dossier for publishing the Tweet on Twitter.
