Basic Twitter Wall

Description

This is a basic twitter wall that will use the streaming API to collect tweets. The last 10 tweets will be shown on the screen. If there's a media file attached to the tweet it will be downloaded as well and will be shown in the background.

Settings

Twitter API Keys

You have to fill those in. Otherwise your device won't be able to use the twitter API. You need to create a new app on twitter.com. Then use the provided API keys to configure this node.

Transitioning to other packages

This package is obsolete now as it didn't really integrate into any other packages. The Schedule Player package offers a better option to show tweets and you can freely mix a our twitter content with other content. Have a look at:
