TeX - LaTeX Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have the following section of TeX:

\documentclass[landscape]{slides}

\usepackage[landscape]{geometry}

\author{My Name}
\title{My Title}
\date{The Date}

\begin{document}

\begin{slide}
\maketitle
\end{slide}

\end{document}

If I try to add anything else to the title slide it is pushed on to the next slide. How can I add my twitter name and a link to my github account to the title page?

Can you include also the preamble of your document such that we can compile and see the result? –  percusse Jun 2 '12 at 14:17

\title, \author and \date literally just stores its contents in \@title, \@author and \@date. So, you can just store more stuff in any one of them if you'd like:

enter image description here

\documentclass[landscape]{slides}
\usepackage[landscape]{geometry}% http://ctan.org/pkg/geometry
\usepackage{hyperref}% http://ctan.org/pkg/hyperref

\author{\parbox{.5\textwidth}{\centering
  My Name \\
  \small Twitter: \href{http://www.twitter.com/whocares}{@whocares} \\[3pt]
  Github: \href{https://github.com/whocares/repository}{Github Repository}}}
\title{My Title}
\date{The Date}

\begin{document}

\begin{slide}
\maketitle
\end{slide}

\end{document}

The formatting of the hyperlinks via \hypersetup, as well as the layout can be changed.

You can do something like

\author[My name]{My name \\ {\ttfamily myemail@email.com}}
\date[The date]{The date \\ {\smaller Name of the conference}}
...

Disclaimer: This solution applies to the beamer package. I'm unaware of the behaviour of the slides package.
