Twitter “Tweet” button addon to your website! It is SO EASY! Here’s how

So you want to add a neat little Twitter/Tweet/etc button to your website, it really is a great way to “spread the word”. As with most social networking sites they really are the fastest way to be recognised!

So here is how.

The code from Twitter is already basically done for you, you can create your code here at twitter by selecting a bunch of options and then insert the code where you want it on your website. This code already counts for the “dynamic” pages and will refer to twitter the page the user is on when they click the button. If you would like a different URL specified you can put this in when creating your tweet button code. Below is an example

<a href=”http://twitter.com/share” data-count=”vertical”>Tweet</a><script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js”></script>

Thats about it! If you want to know the code I’ve used on this page to the right, here it is.

<a href=”http://twitter.com/share” data-count=”horizontal”>Tweet</a><script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js”></script>

Cheers :)

Twitter logo/icon and name remain the property of Twitter.com
