Embedding a Twitter Feed in Google Sites

Today, most conferences and workshops deploy a Twitter hashtag for attendees to use during the event to share what they’ve learned, are getting excited about, or what they’ve thought as just plain cool. This also helps those in charge of the event by giving them a medium for receiving feedback about individual sessions, speakers, and how the overall experience went.

As part of a Summer Institute run by the York Schools Department, I have been helping to build the website for Part 2 of this 4-day event called the GAFE Peak site. I was asked to embed a Twitter feed that would follow our hashtag: #gafepeak, and while there was a gadget in the past that supported this it has since been removed. However, thanks to a handy tutorial on YouTube by Chantelle Leavett and Twitter’s Widgets tool I was able to pull it off.
