We have previously spoken about why a Twitter Wall is important for your events, but what we haven’t discussed is how important it is to ensure that the software you covers a variety of areas in order to keep the feed clean, easy to read and visually appealing. The experts at Social Sticker have a list of things to look out for when it comes to looking at providing a Twitter Wall for your event.
Obviously it would be a pain to have to stop what you’re doing throughout the day to keep the feed up to date, just like you would in Twitters regular feed. You will need a tool that can do it on your behalf so you needn’t think about it.
Although Twitter follows a very functional and easy to read layout, it isn’t something to be seen as practical for live events. Your screen will be heavily taken over by content that isn’t relevant or necessary and there will be a lot of text overcrowding the screen. For example, you don’t need to see the “trending” box on the left hand side, so you need a tool that will eliminate all unnecessary features in order to create a stimulating visualisation and to truly engage with your audience.
A main issue with simply sharing the hashtag feed is that you don’t have the ability to control the content that appears on the screen. Though you don’t want to turn your feed into propaganda, you also want to avoid any unwanted words or imagery that may not be suitable for the event.
How it’s done
Social Sticker are here to solve all of these obstacles, providing you with a wonderful Twitter Wall with advanced options for filtering out unwanted content. Let’s take a look at how we approach building the wall you need.
When it comes to automatic updating, Social Sticker instantly forms a collection of the latest tweets and displays them for your event. You have the options of choosing to display any hashtags you wish to see people using, mentions to your profile or the topic of your choice. You can even mix these into one stream if you wish.
Social Sticker are here to ensure that your Twitter Wall is visually stimulating to your attendees. All displays are customisable to your ideal appearance, leaving you in charge of things such as the colour scheme, background image, text colour, imagery on the header and footer, as well as how the tweets are displayed as they appear through the feed.
On top of this, our paid subscriptions offer you the ability to choose different layouts on the screen. You have the ability to display single tweets or multiple tweets on a masonry style layout. There are currently six layout options, but if you have a particular layout in mind then don’t hesitate to get in touch to see what we can help create.
In terms of filtering, Social Sticker provide you with the option to have an automatic filter to only put the tweets using the hashtags or keywords you have chosen, or by going manual you are able to approve or delete tweets that may not appear suitable for your event.
Social Sticker are here for all your Twitter Wall needs, and have everything to offer in order to make your feed visually appealing for your attendees. Get in touch with us today to discuss what we can do to help build your ideal Twitter Wall.
