Twitter

Show the latest tweets from yourself, from the people you follow, with a certain hashtag or matching advanced search criteria.

During playback, each time the page is shown again, the app advances to the next available tweet (depending on the exact configuration).

Show what tweets? (Only when style is set to "Callout", "Polaroid" or "Transparent") Configure what tweet should be shown every time the app is shown again:
  • All recent (rotating): starting from the oldest available tweet, it always advances to the next tweet. When the newest is reached, it starts with the oldest again, unless a newer one becomes available.
  • Latest: always only show the latest tweet
  • Latest - 1: always only show the second to latest tweet
  • Latest - X: etc.

  • Callout: a single tweet at a time as a callout bubble, without image
  • Polaroid: a single tweet at a time as a strip with a polaroid image (when an image is included)
  • Social wall: a collection of tweets spread across multiple columns, including images (when an image is included)
  • Transparent: a single tweet at a time with a transparent background, without image
Number of columns (Only when style is set to "Social wall") The number of columns to fill with tweets.
Background color palette (Only when style is set to "Social wall") Choose up to three different colors to have the app randomly choose as background color of the individual tweets. Also see our tips section about selecting and entering colors.

And finally there are a number of generic app properties that you can configure that you'll find on many other elements as well.
