The Microsoft Twitter PowerPoint Plugin allows for the complete integration of social media with professional presentations and gatherings. While the web world has allowed conferences and meetings to be streamed via Twitter so that audiences can track, trend, and tweet about the presentation, it hasn’t yet created something to provide the presenter with real-time, constant feedback.

The Twitter PowerPoint Plugin solves that problem by connecting the presenter to the tweeter. With the Twitter Powerpoint Plugin, comments made by the audience will appear directly on the PowerPoint screen during the presentation.

Here are some of the features of the plugin, as highlighted by Timo Elliot from SAP Web 2.0:

Based on the SAP BusinessObjects Xcelsius dashboarding technology, but completely free to use, the prototypes can be embedded in any PowerPoint slide deck, and provide a real-time Twitter ticker feed, a Twitter feedback slide, and a set of Twitter voting templates.
