Social Media: Twitter

You can add many different kinds of tweet streams to your web pages: just your tweets, a group of user tweets, or mentions and searches.

To add Twitter content, you’ll need to make a Twitter widget in LiveWhale. LiveWhale Widgets are the engines that power automated content like this on your web pages.

For the Twitter widget, you can select any number of usernames, mentions or searches to use as criteria for tweets to include and for a basic widget, that should be all that you need to do before dropping it onto a web page.

All social media content is cached by LiveWhale, so even if Twitter goes down, you’ll still see the tweets in your pages. If you’re at all unsure of this you may want to walk through this the first time with the help of your Admin.
