Give users ready-made “soundbites” to tweet.
TweetHerder introduces a shortcode to easily add “Tweet This” buttons to quotes inside your posts. Mark any piece of text inside a post or page as “tweetable” and TweetHerder will automatically add a “Tweet This” button.
Now with event tracking through Google Analytics, so you know exactly how your users are engaging with your content.
- How do I mark a piece of my post as tweetable
- In the visual editor: mark the selection you want to tweet and click the big T button.
- In the HTML editor: add the [tweetherder] shortcode around the fragment you want to tweet.
- Can I change the tweeted text?
By default, TweetHerder will tweet the text inside the shortcode. If you want to tweet something else, add the “text” parameter. For instance:
[tweetherder text="Text to be tweeted"]A nice quote[/tweetherder]
- Can I change the style?
Yes you can.
- TweetHerder attaches the “tweetherder” class to the link. You can use that in your stylesheets.
- In the settings page there is a custom CSS field. All CSS entered there will be added verbatim to the “style” tag.
- The Google Analytics integration isn’t working
- How do I create a Google Analytics report of TweetHerder events?
There are many reports you can create, here’s one option:
Open your Google Analytics account. In the content section, open the events reports. Select the “tweetherder” category.
As primary dimension select “action” and as secondary “label”.
- URL encode the text, so hashtags work correctly
