How to Embed Twitter in PowerPoint

Though it's rare to embed twitter in PPT, there's a way to do the trick. Here's the steps.

Step 1 Download the PowerPoint add-on from SAP Web 2.0 and save it on your computer. It should be a file named powerpoint_twitter_tools.ppt, a presentation with the SAP Web 2.0 Twitter tools embedded.

Step 2 Double-click to open the PPT file. The click on the 4th slide of the presentation.

Step 3 Press Shift+F5 to start the presentation. Type the search term you want to return in the lower left-hand corner of the screen, then click Refresh. You'll see the most recent tweets with that term.
Enter search term

For example, I entered "St. Patrick's Day", and I got this:

Step 4 Copy and paste this slide into your PowerPoint presentation. Done. This is how we normally embed twitter in PowerPoint.

  • You must have Internet access when you're giving the presentation for the twitter feed to appear.
  • Enter the search term before you give your presentation live so it will refresh automatically.

Play PowerPoint on Galaxy S4

As an Android based gadget, its system can't be as fluent as iOS yet, let alone the malware hidden in Android apps. Moreover, it could be a little difficult to view PowerPoint on Galaxy S4. Usually users show PPT on Android devices with Office apps, but these apps can't totally remain some PowerPoint elements, such as background music, animations and transition. As an alternative of Office apps, a PowerPoint to Galaxy S4 video converter can be used to solve the problem. By converting PowerPoint files to mobile suitable video formats, users can play PPT on Galaxy S4's HD display without difficulty.

4 Methods to Reduce PowerPoint File Size

I've just finished a PowerPoint file, but it's almost 20 MB in size! It's too large to send by e-mail. How on earth can I reduce my PowerPoint file size?

There are several methods to reduce PPT size in PowerPoint 2010. Some of them are available for all PowerPoint versions. Now let's take a look.

Method 1 Save PowerPoint with a new file name
It's said in some cases, this method can reduce the size of the file by up to 50%.
1) Click File and choose Save As in the tool bar.
2) Type a new file name, then click Save.

Method 2 Compress PowerPoint pictures
You can make the PowerPoint file size smaller by reducing the color format of the pictures (compressing).

2) Clear the check box next to “add properties to attachments to enable reply with changes”.

1) Add a new slide to the end of the first PowerPoint file.
2) On the Home tab, click on the rectangle tool in the Drawing section.
