Tweetable Text

Description

Add a Tweet and Buffer button to key sentences right inside each blog post. Just add [tweetable] tags around the text. eg. “Here’s my blog post. [tweetable]This profound sentence is tweetable. Tweet it![/tweetable] Thank you.”

Screenshots

  • A blog post when you hover over tweetable text.
  • A blog post with tweetable text.
  • A blog post after you click the tweetable text.

Installation

  1. Upload the tweetable-text directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place [tweetable] [/tweetable] tags around sentences in your blog posts. They will appear with dotted underlines and clicking them will load a Tweet page including the text in the tag.

FAQ

How do I make a sentence tweetable?

Let’s say you have this as your post:
Hello world! This is an exciting blog! I will share stuff with you.

You can make a sentence tweetable by adding the [tweetable] shortcode around any sentence you want, like this:

Hello world! [tweetable]This is an exciting blog![/tweetable] I will share stuff with you.

Now, the sentence “This is an exciting blog!” will be a special link. If the reader clicks it, they’ll load a window confirming the tweet (and allowing them to edit it.) If they hover over the link, a Tweet and Buffer button will pop up over it.

Can I add #hashtags to my tweets?

Yes, like this:
[tweetable hashtags=”#foo #bar”]This text is tweetable![/tweetable]

Now the tweet will be “This text is tweetable! #foo #bar”

Can I edit the style of the tweetable text?

Yes, you need to create a css override for the style like this:

.tweetable a { 
  //Your new style for tweetable links
}
