    I like the simplicity of the plugin, but when I try to share with Twitter I get an Error “URL required ‘url’ parameter does not contain a valid URL.” In the URL bar is: http://twitter.com/share?url=http://houston.myhomecareblog.com/2010/10/handling-your-parents%E2%80%99-social-security/&text=Handling%20Your%20Parents%E2%80%99%20Social%20Security. Any ideas?

    That's due to the apostrophe at the end of the word 'parents'. the Twitter URL parser doesn't like that character in the URL. I would recommend changing the slug (not the actual title) to remove any characters like that.
