How can I generate the code needed to create an app displaying a specific Twitter user's feed on the Result List?

To create a Twitter app (formerly known as a widget) that displays a specific user's feed (e.g. your institution, EBSCO) and display it on the Result List:

  1. Log in to the Twitter account which you would like to display in the app.

  2. Go to Settings.

  3. Select Widgets.

  4. Select Create New.

  5. Select Profile.

  6. Enter the URL for the Twitter feed you would like to display in the field provided and click the arrow at the end of the field. (For example: https://twitter.com/EBSCO)

  7. Click a display option for your Twitter app: Embedded Timeline or Twitter Buttons.

  8. Select the code that appears and click Copy Code.

  9. Paste code into EBSCOadmin to add the app.

    For step-by-step instructions on adding this app in EBSCOadmin, see the following FAQ:
