Twitter Tweet This Button launches for your site

Posted on | August 16, 2010 | 1 Comment

Yup, it’s official..

The back and forth between Facebook and Twitter continuos with the launch of Twitter’s new tweet this button..

It’s making some social waves around the world wide web as I write this, and there are so many organisations and technology geeks out there that are coding away to get their sites all primed and ready.

Luckily for WordPress users, our favorite blog hosting solution has already rolled out their integration in a ready to go package.

So, if you’re a user and also want the new official tweet button all you need to do is:

  • Head to Appearances, then Extras in your menu
  • Click on the “Show a Twitter Tweet Button on my posts” button.
  • True, it really is as easy as that and you should be up and running in no time at all.

    Not a WordPress user? Want to get the Twitter Tweet This button on your site? It’s pretty easy anyway and here’s what you need to do:

  • Go to: Twitter Tweet This Button
  • Choose what kind of Tweet This button you want to use?
  • Preview your button (whatever one you choose) and the click for code
  • Tweet This Button Examples

    The great thing is that you can also customise the button is so many ways so head on over to Twitter Tweet This Button and see what Social Magic you can create..

    Will you be adding the Tweet this button to your site?? Good luck if you do, it’s sure to be huge and a nice traffic driver.

      I’ve been told that for self-hosted WP bloggers, you can also get the new tweet button as part of Simple Twitter Connect:
