Import and Display Tweets in Livestream Studio Graphics

You can include a graphics layer of a Twitter feed from a username or hashtag in a graphics overlay in Livestream Studio.

To get started, you may want to consider adding a Twitter graphic template from our Graphics Store. In the GFX panel, select Twitter from the Categories menu, then click +ADD under one of the design options.

When the graphic is imported, you will see the design preview on the left side and a prompt to sign in on the right. Click Sign in with Twitter to open a browser window and sign in to Twitter. This is required in order to allow Studio and Twitter to communicate with each other, however you are not limited to displaying tweets only from your own Twitter account.
