[Plugin: SexyBookmarks] Twitter: RT or via? (4 posts)

    Hi, one more suggestion on Twitter based on user feedback. :) RT is not really good because most of the posts don't go to our Twitter, so it's not a ReTweet. I think the pattern would be better if it added a " (via @User)" in the end of the tweet, what do you think?

    The whole idea behind the RT is the fact that when a user is on your site and they decide to use the plugin to submit your article to Twitter, then they will be updating their Twitter status with a RT directed at your username followed by the post title...

    Imagine if I were on your site and I just tweeted one of your articles (hypothetically)... It might look something like this:

    RT @rfischmann: This is the title of a great post for you to[...] http://e7t.us/12345

    That's the whole reason for the RT, simply so that they will be ReTweeting your article.

    Either way would work I suppose... I'll add an option to be able to use whichever floats your train in a future update.

    Yeah, my only doubt is: if RT means ReTweet and the article hasn't been tweeted yet, there's no sense in posting it as a RT. My username doesn't pull all the articles from my blog, understand?

    I know it's kinda late, but I have implemented your idea in v2.5.3.4 and it's out now.
