Wow, it’s been a crazy year of behind the scenes development—and today we’re finally ready to talk about them!
So, what’s new?
New design options!
Twitter, Slack, Instagram, and moaarrr!
The second thing is the announcement of more content sources! You can now create your social walls using not just Twitter and Instagram, but also Slack! Slack is something we’ve been getting asked for practically since they launched.
We use Slack here, and it really is the perfect communication tool—but one thing we wanted to do from the beginning was to make it so you can show your Slack posts on screens in your office, and that actually leads me into the third announcement…. We now support ongoing walls, so you can show a wall on a screen at your office year round.

Here in the states, it’s election day today. And in case you missed it, there are two very different candidates waiting for your votes today (there’s more, but sadly only two of the parties get any consideration). After you’ve got your vote in, we have some great news for those of you holding election day parties and events—templates!
We’ve noticed a huge uptick in people creating election day Tweetwalls, and we thought, “hey, what a great idea!” To make things better, and your election day events event more awesome, we’ve created 3 different templates you can use for your election day event. They are completely free for any Tweetwall (The Tweetwall is still paid, sorry).
The three templates are for Democrat-leaning events, Republican-leaning events, and neutral events. And here they are:
Democrat Party Focused
Republican Party Focused
Party Neutral Focused
As we said above, these templates are free! Here’s how to use them:
- Create your Tweetwall at tweetwall.com, like you normally would. You can use any hashtag you’d like, but keep in mind some of them are going to be really flying… we highly recommend you block retweets, and enable a follower count filter of at least 5,000 if you plan on following any of the […]
So you have chosen full moderation for your Tweetwall, now what? Now it’s time for you to chose exactly what your attendees see on display. This means you can weed out whatever you don’t want seen or may just want to save for later.
To begin, click on the burnt orange button that looks like a police officer on the right hand side of the dashboard. This will take you to your moderation queue, showing what you have to sift through and decide if it will show up on your live feed.
By clicking on Displayed you will be able to view exactly what is currently being displayed on your Tweetwall. You can change any tweet by clicking “Move” then whichever folder you would like it in. This will immediately remove it and will be available in your other moderation folders.
In the Blocked section of moderation is where posts that have been blocked are stored. These are either there because you have manually blocked them or one of the filters you have set up have removed it from your feed. You are able to “unblock” any post you chose by clicking “Move” and putting it wherever you need it.
So you don’t know if a post […]
Today, I’m happy to announce probably our largest update since we launched our self-service platform in May of last year. Not only are we announcing the general availability of several features like Embedding of your Tweetwall, direct monitoring of Instagram, Announcements, and Polls, we’re also announcing the general availability of All Access.
All Access is a monthly (or yearly) recurring plan that allows you to create an unlimited number of Tweetwalls, and they can be of any duration too! There’s two plans, a Base plan at $299/mo, and Premium plan at $499/mo. We also have them available in yearly billing, which will save you 20% over the monthly price.
Just to be clear, All Access does not replace our standard per event pricing that we’ve always had—that’s still available and the default. Now though, you have more options that can dramatically save you money.
We’ve had All Access available in preview for quite some time, as well as many of these other features, but up until recently, you had to request to have it made available to you.
If you’ve got an event for an extended period—or maybe not even an event, but an office that you’d like to display Tweets at constantly, which […]
Today we’re proud to announce the release of the Tweetwall Chrome App. Whether you use Google Chrome on Windows, Mac, Linux or Chrome OS—we support it, and quite beautifully I might add…
The video below shows just how easy it is to install the Tweetwall Chrome app in Chrome OS and launch your Tweetwall. Even if you’re not using Chrome OS, the app’s interface and how it functions are still the same.
Some of the awesome benefits of using the Chrome App are:
- It automatically prevents your computer from going to sleep
- It automatically hides your mouse after a few seconds
- It automatically goes full screen for you, so your Tweetwall remains the main focus.
You can get the new Chrome app from the Chrome Store, or by going to the Tweetwall Apps page (you can also see the other apps we have there).
We’ve also put together some FAQs for the Tweetwall Chrome App.
