    Hello,
    I would love to install Better click to tweet. But before I do I have one concern: does twitter use the plugin to grab website visitor data before they click the “click to tweet” button. That would mean that twitter gets information about all my website visitors even if they don’t use the feature. This is a problem with many social media plugins.
    Can you please let me know if that is the case?
    Thanks,
    Wiebke

    Hi Wiebke,

    Thanks for the message.

    No, all Better Click To Tweet Does is specially format an outgoing link to twitter. (actually technically two links) When a reader clicks on the link, if they are logged into twitter at the time, it will give them the ability to immediately click it. If they are not logged in, it gives them the opportunity to log in a tweet the text.

    It uses what is called a “Web Intent” on Twitter to make that happen. You can read more about that here: https://dev.twitter.com/web/intents

    There is no security issue whatsoever with Better Click To Tweet.

    Let me know if I can clarify that for you.

    Thanks!
