FAQ

What does this do?

Adds a button to the TinyMCE to wrap a twitter username in a shortcode that’ll build out the link automatically. You simply type the twitter handle, highlight, press the button, and it will be wrapped in a shortcode. The shortcode will create the link and include the @ in the display. Also includes a CSS class (a.twitter-name) if you want to style it differently that the rest of your site.

Is that it?

Yep. That’s it.
