Twitter Rollup Webpart


Today i am releasing the beta version of my Twitter Rollup Webpart.  Do you have a favorite Celebrity or user / group that you enjoy following via twitter.  Now you can surface multiple twitter accounts into a single webpart and utilizing Jquery Accordion you can view the one you are most interested in and collapse the rest.

The webpart currently uses twitters json service to retrieve the values it needs to display the tweets.  If you have any suggestions, problems or praise please let me know either via a comment on this post or email me using the contact page.

SPTwitter – Internal Twitter Application for Teams


I have been looking around the web at new applications and came accross the TeamTalk for SharePoint 2010 by ZevenSeas.  They released a no code (server code) site template for internal twitter team talks.  I thought that the concepts was fantastic and simple to implement, so i decided to create my own version using Visual Studio 2010 and Utilise SharePoint 2010’s new Sandbox Solutions.

My Solution which is now on the LifeInSharePoint Codeplex page is a sandbox solution which deploys content types, list definitions, and contains three webparts which you can place anywhere on the page / site.  The Solution is designed so you can install the solution on multiple Webs and they will work individually.

The release at the moment is a beta release and any comments, additions and recommendations would be fantastic.  I will be implementing a “Re-tweeting” functionality as well as a SharePoint Server version which links in with user profiles for a more enhanced experience.  Like i said, its still work in progress, but please feel free to try it out.
