[resolved] Twitter official Buttons (2 posts)

    Hello,

    Your plugin is Awesome except that it doesn't give an option to use Twitter official buttons. I really wonder why not add them as options...

    There are many plugins that use that but your plugin has a feature that I really like: "Local WordPress URLs".

    So I was hoping that you add options for official buttons for twitter especially the vertical one.

    Thanks!

    I will have to add this eventually but I really don't like JavaScript. If you change from "Web Links" to "Share Links" in the options, you'll get the equivalent of the official Twitter button, minus the counter, icon, and JavaScript. Unlike the official button, your readers can see where these links go directly in their status bars while hovering the mouse over the links.

    The vertical Twitter button with the counter would not be useful to me because most of my posts have exactly 1 tweet: mine. It doesn't look good to have retweet buttons all over your site which read 0 or 1, and for 95% of WordPress bloggers that is the case.
