Improved Dashboard Feature: Twitter Account Integration

Author weisin     Category Chalkboard

Business owners can now integrate their Twitter account with their Chalkboard account with more ease! We are always looking to make our product more user-friendly, so we’ve rolled out an easier version of our Twitter feature. This lets businesses add their Twitter account to their Chalkboard account, so they can publish promotions directly from Twitter. Kudos to Warun, our resident geek, for this awesome improvement!

All Chalkboard promotions will now also appear on Chalkboard’s Twitter feed. You’ll see the location, a glimpse of the promotion, and a link to the entire promotion.

Read on for instructions to activate and use the Twitter feature.

How to Activate:

Step 1: Login to your Chalkboard account. Access your dashboard.

Step 2: Click the “Add Twitter Account” button. You should be navigated to Twitter’s login page.

Step 3: Login to your company’s Twitter account.

Step 4: Upon successful login, select the locations you want your Twitter account to post promotions for.

Note: Uncheck the “Protect my tweets” box in your Twitter settings to allow uninterrupted posting of promotions from your Twitter account.


You’re now ready to tweet promotions to customers!

How to Tweet a Promotion:

Step 1: Login to your Twitter account.

Step 2: Tweet your promotion. It’ll appear on your Twitter feed, Chalkboard’s Twitter feed, all Chalkboard-supporting apps and widgets, and your Chalkboard dashboard.

Note: Retweets, replies and mentions will not be detected as promotions.

And you’re all set!

(Don’t worry if your tweet isn’t updated on your Chalkboard dashboard instantly. Please give us 2 minutes to sync the accounts.)

To edit your Twitter locations, or to deactivate Twitter from your Chalkboard account, simply click on “Twitter Settings”, where the “Add Twitter Account” button used to be.
