Tweet This! Leveraging Twitter into your Commons Community

Twitter now handles over a billion tweets every week. With over 200 million users, and almost half a million new users created every day, the power of Twitter is critical for any community to harness in order to ensure success. It has changed how we consume our information - how we get our news updates, celebrity gossip, coupons, deals, and connect with friends. All in 140 characters or less.

Acquia’s Commons is the easiest way to deploy a Drupal community site. There are over 170 modules in Drupal.org that relate to Twitter - how do you know which ones will work best for you? Do you want to send status updates to Twitter? Or maybe follow topics or accounts from Twitter in your community site to stay up to date on key issues important to your community?

This webinar surveys useful Twitter features that incorporate well into Commons communities.

Attendees will learn:

  • how to install and configure Twitter modules on an existing Commons site
  • how to display Twitter feeds
  • how to set up and manage which content types post automatically to Twitter
