Tracked Tweets


  • Define format of tweet, with control over where variables are inserted
  • Track clicks to your blog using Google Analytics. The Source and Medium fields can be defined, Campaign name is set to the post title
  • URL is shortened via tinyurl,,, or the RevCanonical plugin
  • If title is too long, it is shortened so the tweet can still be sent
