Another tweet on the wall

wall? The internet does not have walls.

Oh, but we do have one. Our wall doesn’t separate people. It brings them closer. More specifically, we bring the audience closer to you at your event.

Sounds interesting. What is it?

It is a twitter wall!

A twitter wall is an awesome way to engage your social media audiences at your event. Any tweets related to an event will pop up on our wall within seconds of the actual tweet.

Setting up a twitter wall on Loklak is super easy.

Step 1: Give us some basic information about your event

Step 2: Tell us what content should appear on your wall. You can be as specific as you want. Or not at all!

Step 3: Tell us how your wall should look. You get four different layouts to choose from:

  1. Linear: 3 tweets are shown at a time.
  2. Grid: 9 tweets perfectly arranged in a grid.
  3. Center of attraction: One big tweet in the center of the page.
  4. Map: YES! A MAP! Watch tweets appear on a map!

We have beautiful animations too. We really want your twitter wall to look good when you show it at your event.

Soon to come:

  • Tweet statistics. View how many people tweeted over time. View top hashtags, top mentions and top twitterers. All this in real time!
  • More layouts. You can suggest us one too!
  • A photo wall. Watch photos from twitter and instagram come alive on the wall when within seconds of posting.
  • A dashboard and the ability to quickly save, edit and create new twitter walls.

The technology

The Loklak twitter wall is a part of the Loklak webclient which is powered by the Loklak server. We use AngularJS with browserify to make our app modular, along with some CSS magic to deliver a beautiful and useful product. The best part is that we are open source. You can contribute too! We are on Github.
