My Articles on VT Facebook and Twitter have strange characters. Why?

Ok, so you make a post on our VT Network site and boom, you check our Facebook and Twitter pages and see your post has strange characters.

First, please REFRAIN from using characters in your EXCERPTS and in the first paragraph of your posts.  Why?

Because It screws up your automatic posts on Twitter and Facebook.(SEE VISUAL BELOW)

FB and Twitter just don’t respond well to auto posts with characters.

Also, as soon as you hit the PUBLISH button, it’s automatic.  Your stuff is posted on Twitter and Facebook.  So always be sure your post is solid and clean before you post. 

And finally, if you need to edit your post later, do NOT enable social posts because it’s already been posted
