Using the Social Feeds Section
The Turbo theme includes a 'Social Feeds' homepage section which allows you to upload a Twitter and Instagram feed. If you choose to display both feeds, they will display side-by-side. If you display only the Instagram feed, it will expand to fit the width of the 'container'.
Social media is a key way to connect with customers, generate awareness, and increase sales. Adding 'Social Feeds' to your homepage is a excellent way for your customers to engage with your company and brand.
Within this section, you can display up to 12 images in your Instagram feed, and up to 10 tweets in your Twitter feed.
In order to set up the Social Feeds, click into Customize (your Theme Editor) > Sections > Add Section > Social Feeds.

You can add a 'heading' in specifically for your Instagram Feed here. If you'd like to link up the heading, you can click 'Theme Settings' and enter a URL in the 'Instagram link' field as well!
Number of Images
You can choose the number of images that you'd like to appear in your Instagram feed. Pick from 2 to 12. If you have the 'Twitter feed' enabled as well, then the number of images will display vertically down the page. If you do not have the 'Twitter feed' enabled, then the number of images will display horizontally across as well to fill up the width of the section.
Here's where you enter your Twitter handle/username. Once you enter it, your latest tweets will then appear.
You can add a 'heading' in specifically for your Twitter Feed here.
