We would like to add a "Latest Tweet" and "Latest Facebook Post" feature to our campaigns. Has anyone had any luck?
Right now you'd need to do that manually (or construct your campaign via the API) as Campaign Monitor doesn't have a way to pull information in for you.
We've done this a couple times for some clients - used more as a sample of that they'd get if they followed on twitter rather than an up to date message (so we did it manually). You could potentially pull in the rss and publish it in, but it may be over engineering the situation when it's so easy to copy and paste and 'hard code' it.
I had assumed that the "latest" post/tweet would mean the latest at the time of sending, not dynamic based on the time of opening the email (although that would be nice).
I may look in to pulling in the RSS feed. The email we are creating is a template that we are handing over to our client, so I want to make it as idiot-proof as possible.
For the first time, I'm jealous of mailchimp since they offer this feature (although not jealous enough to leave CM).
