Description

Click to Tweet: The #1 WordPress Plugin for Twitter

Click to Tweet is the easiest way to promote your content and encourage your audience to share it on Twitter through active prompts and optimal usability.

So how does it work? After installation and activation, bloggers and content managers can create click to tweet text or image boxes comprised of relevant excerpts from a blog post or page. Because the plugin accommodates a myriad of styles, if there’s new or revised content to disperse, Click to Tweet can facilitate it via highly customizable displays and themed templates.

Click to Tweet is the professional, noninvasive way to ask subscribers and visitors to share content while giving them a single-click pathway to completion. If you want your content to be shared, you absolutely must make it easy.

Click to Tweet is successful because of its simple, effective promotion that adheres to the character count parameters of Twitter. You can also include Twitter usernames automatically to increase social media followers even more!

Reviews

Plugin doesn’t work

I like the idea and the opportunities this plugin gives. However, every time when I try to insert a tweetable quote, I see a loading bar but it doesn’t load anything. I don’t have a slow laptop and the screen doesn’t freeze. It just doesn’t load anything.

The same happens when I try to change my settings on the settings page.

Again, other plugins work perfectly on my website. I don’t have a slow laptop (I have an intel core i7 processor) so it doesn’t freeze. I can just click anywhere else and I end up on my post directly and I can continue doing things I like to do.

But if it doesn’t load anything, I simply can’t use it.

Please fix it and I will change my review.
