You can advertise your twitter profile on the “about us” pages see the “We’re on Twitter” icon on the public pages

To set this up on your own website, go to website tab, website settings and type in your Twitter username into the relevant box and save changes.

To add in a Twitter Follow button on any page in the page editor click on "what are short codes".

You will see short code syntax pop-up, click on Twitter Follow.

This will open up a new window with instructions for embedding the Twitter Follow icon

Simply type in to the relevant part of your text editor {{twitter_follow[yourtwittername]}} where “yourtwittername” is replaced by your actual twitter name)

If you want to embed your Twitter timeline in one of your pages, again you need to visit short codes and select Twitter Timeline.

When you click on Twitter Timeline a new window will open

You will see that you need to create a Twitter Widget in Twitter, once you have followed the instructions in Twitter you will be asked to Create Widget

Once you create your widget ID you will get a code for example ClubBuzz have the ID 359319026297610242 you just need this and your Twitter name.

Go back to your website and type in your relevant information (so for the ClubBuzz timeline we would type our name and our number as generated in Twitter {{twitter_timeline[clubbuzz: 359319026297610242]}}

Save the changes and then view your website
