With Pubble you can stream tweets into your Pubble dashboard based on #hashtags. This is designed to be used in conjunction with live events using our Live QA or Live Blog enabling you to display tweets by designated hashtag to your event participants.
The Twitter stream
By default tweets will be streamed into the Twitter stream which can be accessed from the left-hand menu of the dashboard. Tweets shown here will only appear here and not publicly in the client-side widget (the Live QA or Live Blog event), this in effect is a moderation area where you can review tweets before sending them onto your public event page
Note: Tweets can also be set up to automatically be sent to the public widget bypassing the Twitter stream
To view tweets in the Twitter Stream you need to be a subscriber. Community Admins can add subscribers by clicking the
Subscription tab on the right-hand side. It is highly recommended that any moderators for the Live QA or Live Blog event are also subscribers to the Twitter Stream.
Tweets will appear in the stream as below:
In order to send a tweet to an event stream, you must select the event and the type of post (Question or an Update)
To select an event click the
Select app button on the tweet tile, you will then see a list of event apps where you can select one.
You then need to click
Push as Question or
Push as Update depending the the type of tweet and event
If your event is a Live Blog then you will most likely want to push the tweet as an Update
Similarly, if your event is a Live QA then pushing as a Question will likely make sense, however there may be instances when you want to push as an Update, such as an announcement.
Once you select an app to push the tweet to, you can chose to remember the option so that you do not have to keep selecting it for every tweet. Just click the circle icon next to the option
When a tweet has been pushed to an app it will disappear from the Twitter Stream as it now belongs to the selected app. You can still access the tweet from the Live QA or Live Blog question/update stream from the left-hand menu.
Should you not want to push a tweet to an event (if it's spammy for example) you can click
Ignore this will remove the tweet from the stream and you can continue on to the next tweet
When you have pushed the tweet to the event, it should look something like this to visitors:
