  2. That's normal. Like any other third-party app, you need to explicitly give the Sexy Bookmarks Twitter tool permission to connect to your Twitter account.

    @phattrance for some reason I can't see the screenshot link you posted.

    In v3.3.8 we introduced a new way to share on Twitter that no longer requires the sharer to leave your website. They can share to Twitter right from your webpage. Users can now also share to multiple Twitter accounts at the same time. We believe this will lead to easier sharing (once setup) and more sharing activity on your site as a result!

    As @zoonini quite aptly put it, like any other third-party app, you need to explicitly give the Sexy Bookmarks Twitter tool permission to connect to your Twitter account.

    Here is why we upgraded:

    You should only have to connect once (across ANY blog that uses SexyBookmarks). If you're having to connect each time you try to share something, that is a bug. If so, please let us know which web browser you're using so we can troubleshoot.

    Is it possible to revert to the old twitter behavior? I don't want my readers to have to give access to their twitter accounts.
