Twitter backgrounds can now be interactive…
Installing and activating your page with Clickable Now is good practice. Your followers, customers, and constituents may be using either browser, and this is just one more step that will help ease the process for people who want to interact with you on the Social Web.
Install the add-on or script into your browser from here, then give Clickable Now access to your Twitter account. Once you do, it’s pretty simple (See the screen shots below):
- Click on the “New Link” button.
- Drag the link box to the portion of your sidebar that you’d like hyper-linked.
- Resize to fit the area to be hyper-linked.
- Enter the email or Web site information, and choose the highlight color.
- Save settings.
That’s it! Although this only works on Firefox browsers, and for those who have installed the add-on, it’s a big step forward. We’ve been wanting the Twitter backgrounds to be interactive for a long time.
You can see below what we’ve hyper-linked @INCULINK or on my personal page @SherryMain. We’ve added live links to our logo and URL, personal blogs, personal Twitter accounts, and to our Facebook fan page.
Perhaps one day, HTML will go the way of Photoshop layers and allow us to upload custom HTML backgrounds behind the Twitter feeds. But until then, this will do…
