[resolved] [Plugin: Really simple Facebook Twitter share buttons] Blog author and twitter nick not the same (9 posts)

    When posted to twitter using tweet-button, the blog's author is suggested to follow. In my case, my nick on wordpress is not the same as on twitter. How do I change this. I want the tweet button to suggest my twitter account to follow, not my wordpress nick. Using "via this user" in settings doesnt do the trick.

    I have a similar problem.

    I've set up the wp nickname to be the same as the twitter name, I've checked the "Add author to follow list:" but still when I press the tweet button it doesn't show the option to add the blog post author to twitter.

    I'm using the latest version 2.4.4.

    Hi all,
    the new 2.5.1 release solves this issue allowing for a new textual Twitter follow list.

    The previous button can be still used for multi-user blogs, in this case each author nickname has to match the Twitter username.

    Hi,
    I installed 2.5.1 but it still doesn't work.

    I have the following settings.

    Hi ezekionokia, the settings are right. Can you tell me your website url?

    Hi ezekionokia, I checked it right now, it works well.

    Please note that Twitter doesn't suggest you to follow an account if you are logged in with the same account!

    I feel kind of stupid right now :)
    Thanks for the debug and sorry I kind of wasted your time with this non-bug-silly stuff.
