CoverItLive is a popular live blogging service that will help you cover any event live on your site. They recently released a feature called the CLI Ticker which will allow you to embed live updates right into your site. The ticker can always be running and can grab feeds from youtube, twitter, or yourself. The ticker has the same features that the normal CoverItLive platform offers with the added automation via Twitter. The setup was quite easy, all I had to do was tell it my Twitter username then embed the code and launch the ticker.
We are going to be testing the live ticker on the main site for a while to see how it works out. Please leave a comment below letting us know what you think.
