    Hello,

    I am having some difficulties with the Twitter share.

    After clicking the button i see a message in the URL that wants to be posted, yet nothing happens. I just see my Twitter account.

    Below an example of the URL that is visable after clicing the Share on Twitter button.

    http://twitter.com/#!/?status=Logokunst+-+http%3A%2F%2Fwww.merkwaardigheden.nl%2F%3Fp%3D1592

    Al other social sites work like a charm, Facebook, Hyves, Linkedin and Nujij.

    Hope someone can me help me out.

    Kind regards,

    Jeroen van Velzen

    I ve observed that the new twitter code should be

    'share_url' => "http://twitter.com/?status=TITLEURI",

    in share-and-follow.php

    for the post to integrate Twitter but there is still the "+" that needs to be replaced by a "space" which i don't know how to do.

    Had the same problem, noticed the fix was giving back messed up code, looked around a little and found this solution instead: http://www.hightechdad.com/2011/05/18/how-to-pre-populate-twitter-status-updates-the-new-way-via-links-web-intents/

    so change the share_url line to:
    'share_url' => "http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=TITLEURI",

    and you get a nice pop out window with your post! Thanks for your help finding what I needed to change, hopefully this helps you!

    Thank you so much for finding this and posted it here!

    It works!

    A bit more information for people who don't know where to edit the line share_url.

    In the share and follow folder there is a file called share-and-follow.php. Scroll down to line 771.

    Delete this line

    'share_url' => "http://twitter.com/home/?status=TITLEURI",

    And paste this line

    'share_url' => "http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=TITLEURI",

    Thanks again robbprescott, much appreciated!

    Thank you thank you thank you. I was hoping I wasn't going to have to switch to a new plugin.

    What happens when they update though? Think they'll include the fix in the update?

    I have this problem but with only the first twitter button on the page not posting info. on click the twitter button just disappears!

    this "fix"

    Delete this line

    'share_url' => "http://twitter.com/home/?status=TITLEURI",

    And paste this line

    'share_url' => "http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=TITLEURI",

    did not work for me.
