I have noticed that this sneaky plugin is adding a related=AddToAny in your Twitter popup urls. As soon as you finish Tweeting, the post-tweet page is always showing a "Who to follow" page suggesting to join AddToAny @AddToAny "The world's best universal sharing platform."
The developer says that it's because we need to add a VIA @. LOL that was the very FIRST thing that I did! I wouldn't even imagine myself using twitter without a VIA :))
The Twitter URLs are always something like this: MYTITLE/MYLINK&related=AddToAny&via=MYTWITTERPAGE
There is no way to remove the related=AddToAny tag from the URL.
Some have already complained about this SPAM issue but the developer micropat claims that we are all stupid and the problem doesn't exist...
Frankly I'm stunned this sneaky spammish plugin has this high rating! It doesn't deserve it!
Too long to load and it cannot be removed from the members area in Buddy Press (provokes many issues in "Message compose" section, while we have Buddy Theme from Enavo Market).
I hate sneaky plugins. This one redirects you to the addtoany site before sharing or tweeting or whatever. So each time someone is sharing a post on your site, the addtoany site gets a hit. Sneaky. I removed it directly after installation.
Since you will receive no help from the criminals who run this plugin, here's a link with instructs on how to remove it

This is a real SPAM-Plugin. After installation it won´t show up in the Plugin-List - so you can´t easyly de-activate it or get rid off it.
Whats more: Every time you click ond "Share" or "Recommend", once installed, you get a nasty addtoany advertisment with a cross-site-sripting.
Every share click goes to AddToAny.com first
Amazing. I came here to compliment this software and after reading the comments I did a little test. After disabling this plugin my site speed improved dramatically as measured by a third-party (Pingdom). Along with other reasons I would avoid this plugin.
Facebook Like, Twitter, and PinIt icons don't show
Customization tool doesn't work
Positioning share buttons doesn't work
Sizing icons doesn't work
Help files provide instructions that don't work
They don't answer forum questions
Emailed support directly and got nothing
I'll edit this review if/when anything changes
Share buttons don't appear in admin menu nor on the website. Can't fix it.
AddtoAny sends your website stats to mediasixdegrees so that they can make money off your information.
This plugin will slow down your website unnecessarily as it sends your stats to MediaSixdegrees.com
