Getting a Twitter Account and adding it to your website is very easy. Here are the steps to place your Twitter status as an Ad on your website. You can also add your status to other pieces of Content
First of all, you have to have a Twitter account. If you don't have one, you will have to go to their website and sign up.*
After you have confirmed your account creation through Twitter (depending on e-mail traffic, your e-mail confirmation might come very quickly or take a few hours), you can now add your status to your website.
Next, create an Ad on your website that will show your status. This can either be a Site Level Ad for your church at large, or it can be a Ministry Level Ad. (Remember, Site Level ads will appear on every page, where as Ministry Level Ads will only appear in the ministry that it has been created in.)
Go to Content Administration and click on Add Ad.**
Click Content Administration and click on Add Ad.
In the Editor toolbar, click the Widget manager (yellow gear button)
Select Twitter from the Widget manager menu.
Enter your Twitter ID.
Type in a Heading title ("My Recent Tweets") and whether the heading is shown.
Choose how many of your latest tweets are displayed.
Click Add to insert it.
Make sure to set the status of this Ad to Published.
* Set your Twitter account so that everyone can see your tweets, not just those who follow you.
**If you desire to add your status to a ministry page, start by going to Ministry Controls and select your ministry before beginning the directions in point 3.
