[email_address] http://twitter.com/sapweb20 December 2009 Slides v1.5 BETA PowerPoint Twitter Tools From SAP BusinessObjects ® ®
This presentation explains the PROTOTYPE PowerPoint Twitter Tools I designed using the SAP BusinessObjects Dashboarding product, Xcelsius , that help make presentations a more interactive, web 2.0 experience.
For more information, detailed instructions and troubleshooting tips, please go to the SAPweb20.com web site:
IN NO EVENT WILL SAP OR TIMO ELLIOTT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF USE OR LOST BUSINESS, REVENUE, OR GOODWILL) ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THESE PROTOTYPES AND/OR THE USE THEREOF, UNDER ANY THEORY OF TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY OR NEGLIGENCE, EVEN IF SAP OR TIMO ELLIOTT HAS BEEN ADVISED, KNEW OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL ANY DAMAGES WHICH MAY BE ASSESSED UPON SAP OR TIMO ELLIOTT FOR ANY REASON.
“ I’d love to present with the Twitter tools, but I’m worried that people might Tweet something inappropriate”
No problem — sign up for a free account at TidyTweet , and you can easily filter out everything that might be a problem, automatically or manually. Then simply enter the custom feed URL in the options tab of the feedback slide.
You can also use this method for internal twitter-like services that offer an ATOM feed — you can choose whether to append the keyword parameter to the URL
Note: This bar uses “basic authentication.” Because of Twitter/ Flash security restrictions, the file “powerpoint_twitter_update_status.swf” must be in the same directory as this slide deck for the bar to work.
This tool is a variation on the twitter voting. The audience can tweet either:
@votebytweet warmer myuniqueid
@votebytweet colder myuniqueid
And the indicator in the bar will move to the right (warmer) or to the left (colder). The bar shows the average of the last n tweets (10 by default)
Usage example: at the start of a presentation, you ask the audience how they feel about a particular topic (e.g. “do you think SAP is an innovative company?”. Then the audience can tweet during the presentation if they agree/disagree, and the bar shows the current “mood”
As with the ticker bar, this should be installed in the powerpoint slide master if you want to use it across slides. See http://www.sapweb20.com/blog/powerpoint-twitter-tools/instructions for more details
