ProPresenter 5 Tutorials: Interspersing Tweets in your Announcement Loop | Screencast show

Like the Bible app in ProPresenter, the Twitter app takes over the interface completely. If you just want to show tweets for a short amount of time, that’s fine, but what if you want to show tweets during your announcement loop. How can you do that?

There are a few ways.

First, you can put the tweets on slides in the loop. This has the downside of not being live, but it will work.

You could also tweet your announcements along with the regular tweets. Then you just add the “announcement tweets” along with the regular tweets.

Finally, if you set the transition to default, you can switch back and forth. This is more manual than he announcement loop normally is, but it works.

Hopefully, in ProPresenter 6 they’ll address this and the Bible limitation, but until then, these hacks should help get you through.
