This is a quick tip for anyone who would like to add a real time twitter hashtag board to any page on their ning site.  

So first I want you to take a look at this link.  I'll wait.

Now, analyzing the structure of this URL you can see a few things which can be changed to make a board for any term

Change the Red for the term you are wanting the latest tweets about

Change this number for number of tweets to show

Change this hex color (leaving the %23) for color of header and the other for header text

This entire URL can become an iFrame inside a module like so:

<iframe src="" style="border:0px #FFFFFF none;" name="NINGtweets" scrolling="no" frameborder="1" marginheight="0px" marginwidth="0px" height="600" width="100%"></iframe>

Try it on these others substituting out NING for other terms to see what I mean:



SEIAD  (Survey Earth in a Day)

Get Fancy with Tabs in Ning 3

Enjoy this time saving hack and let me know if you have any questions...
