Kentico CMS 7: Hands on lab: Integrating Twitter

Technically, Twitter is a micro blogging platform that limits real time comments (tweets) to 140 characters. What may seem like a simple technology has become a worldwide phenomenon with a projected 200 million active users. Leveraging this platform many companies are looking to Twitter as a key part of their integrated marketing campaigns and a key source of real time customer connections. With an extensive and well documented API, Twitter looks to make site integration as easy as possible. In this lab, we will add Twitter functionality to the Kentico Corporate sample site. This will enable site users to tweet and engage about the things they find on your site and enable site owners and administrators to extend their reach. In completing this set of labs you will perform the following tasks:
  • Add the Twitter feed web part
  • Add the Twitter follow button web part
  • Add the Twitter tweet button web part
  • Update the Home page template
