Twitter is where your org goes to share its voice - to tweet, retweet, chime in on threads, interact with customers, go viral, or just keep your business in the conversations that are most relevant to you & your audience.
Fugo’s Twitter app for digital signage allows you to easily share your Twitter feed in real time, as it updates, to your screens! Not only will it showcase that you’re social media game is on top - you can enlist your screens to grow your online audience!
Here’s how to get started:
1.Install the Twitter Feed app
1.1 Log into your Fugo Account. If you don’t have an account yet, you can start your 14-day free trial here.
1.2 Click Apps in the top navigation bar to get to our app store.
1.3 Scroll to find the Twitter Feed app in the store. To find it even faster, you can search for it via the search bar at the top of the store!
1.4 Click Try App to create a new playlist with the app.
Now that you’ve added the app to a playlist, let’s take a look at how to customize the settings!
2. Customize the Twitter app
2.1 A pop-up window will appear where you can customize the app’s settings.
2.2 First, click Login to Twitter in the right-hand settings panel in order to give Fugo access to your Twitter account.
2.3 This will open a new pop window asking you to authorize Fugo to access your account. Click Authorize app in the top left hand corner.
2.4 Your tweets will now appear in the window for previewing. The app settings will appear in the right hand panel.
2.5 First you can set the Duration per tweet (video tweets will run for the full duration of the video.) We recommend keeping it at the default 10 seconds.
2.6 Next you can set how many tweets to show.
2.7 You can also change the Background Color of your tweets. Usually it’s a good idea for the content on your digital signage screen to be consistent with your business branding. You can change the background colour to match your branding in the app settings: Either copy and paste the hexadecimal colour code or choose one from the color picker.
2.8 Finally, you can turn on Offline Mode. We recommend using this if your digital signage player does not have a reliable internet connection. When enabled, offline mode stores all the Tweets on your players so that when the internet connection is down your playback is not affected.
2.9 When you’re all done, click Save Changes in the bottom right hand corner of the window.
Hint: if you want to change the settings of the app at any point later, just click the Setup button on the app’s panel on the playlist page.
Almost there! Now that you’ve got the app set up to your preferences, let’s look at how to finish building your playlist and publish it.
3. Build out your playlist
3.1 Give your playlist a name (we suggest making it something relevant to distinguish it from other playlists later on down the road.)
3.2 Click Select Screens to choose where to publish your playlist.
3.3 If desired, you can add more content to your playlist by clicking Add More Content and choosing other apps or uploading media.
3.4 Finally, you can change the schedule of your content by setting the start and end date, and clicking Week Schedule to edit the days and times your content will run.
4. Publish your playlist
4.1 Once you’re all done setting up the playlist, click Publish in the top right hand corner of the screen to publish or schedule your content.
4.2 If you don’t want to publish just yet, you can click Finish Later and come back to your playlist at any time.
