Add a twitter feed (non-public-facing)

  • Hello,

    Is it possible to add a twitter feed to the Homepage of an internal Teamsite on SharePoint Online?


    I have tried using a content editor web part, per the instructions here: https://www.nothingbutsharepoint.com/sites/eusp/Pages/SharePoint-and-Twitter.aspx, but nothing appeared.


    If it is not possible to use existing web parts, is it possible to purchase a web part for use in SharePoint Online?


    Thanks

  • Hi,

     

    This is Tim with Microsoft Office 365 SharePoint Support.

     

    Unfortunately, adding a Twitter feed to your internal site will require custom code which is outside our scope of support. You can do a Bing Search for "Twitter Feed in SharePoint", and you should be able to come up with the code that you will need to insert a Twitter feed.

    I will continue to monitor this thread if you have any additional questions.

    Thanks,

  • Tim, Your response is really lame. We Pay to use Office365 and expect to get real answers. If you want this platform to be a REAL BUSINESS PLATFORM then you need to provide us (your customers) with real answers. This is the same BS type of answer we got with OfficeLive.. but that was FREE!!

    NO WE ARE PAYING CUSTOMERS>... Pleas eprovide the answer!

  • Try This - wb3.sharepoint.com/.../codegenerator.aspx it works..

  • You can download Office 365 Twitter Sandbox webpart from www.amrein.com/.../page.asp

    this works fine in SharePoint internal sites

  • Here is a easy way to do it:

     

    Using a SharePoint web part we can show our tweets in a widget that's embedded in a SharePoint site.
    We first must create our custom widget here: Widgets
    After creating your custom widget, copy the generated code in a text document and save it in the Site Assets library from SharePoint. 


    In our site we insert a Content Editor web part.


    In the Properties Pane in Content Link section we paste the link to the file that contains the code.
    Then, we save the changes and the Twitter widget becomes active.
