Snap Tweet


Snap Tweet allows you to easily embed tweet-able links (which will be identified with the Twitter logo) within an article, using the [snaptweet][/snaptweet] shortcode. Users are often more likely to tweet a specific quote from an article, rather than just a generic “Tweet this article” link.


  • Link made with Snap Tweet, from the official plugin page.


  1. Download and un-zip the file
  2. Upload the contents of the un-zipped folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. Place [snaptweet][/snaptweet] tags around any text you want to make tweet-able.


Do I need a Twitter app/account to use this plugin?

No, it uses GET data to create the link, meaning that you don’t need even need a Twitter account. Users will need a Twitter account to use the links, of course.

Can I apply my own CSS?

YES! I want to add a built-in CSS editor in time, but for now, links are wrapped in a tag, which gives them the .snaptweet CSS class – just add some CSS to your theme’s style.css and you’re good to go.
