RevelDigital provides a few different options for getting your Twitter feeds integrated seamlessly with your other signage content. Adding Twitter to a marquee playlist will include recent tweets in your scrolling marquees. We also provide a couple different Gadgets for a scrolling list of tweets and for displaying Twitter photos.

Tweets in a Scrolling Marquee
Adding Twitter to a scrolling marquee is similar to adding any other content. You'll just need to know the Twitter screen name and we'll do the rest.
Using a Twitter gadget in a template
To add the Twitter gadget to your template just add a Gadget zone then select one of the Twitter gadgets from the list.
Configure the Twitter Gadget
With the gadget selected you will have a number of options to choose from. The only required option is the Search Query field. This determines which tweets you want displayed. Twitter has a number of search operators. Some of the more common include:
|watching now||containing both “watching” and “now”. This is the default operator.|
|“happy hour”||containing the exact phrase “happy hour”.|
|love OR hate||containing either “love” or “hate” (or both).|
|beer -root||containing “beer” but not “root”.|
|#haiku||containing the hashtag “haiku”.|
|from:interior||sent from Twitter account “interior”.|
|list:NASA/astronauts-in-space-now||sent from a Twitter account in the NASA list astronauts-in-space-now|
|to:NASA||a Tweet authored in reply to Twitter account “NASA”.|
|@NASA||mentioning Twitter account “NASA”.|
|politics filter:safe||containing “politics” with Tweets marked as potentially sensitive removed.|
