TWEET it – increase your social shares

Invite social shares for your next blog post or for a website page by creating a pre-populated tweet link. With this you can generate a hyperlink that automatically posts a twitter message when clicked. Try it!

  1. To create a pre-populated tweet link URL, start with: http://twitter.com/home/?status=
  2. Following the equal sign, add the text tweet message using the plus sign (+) for spaces
  3. Add the URL, bit.ly link, and/or Twitter handle
  4. If you include a hashtag, replace the pound sign (#) with %23.

Here is how the URL would look to add a tweet-it link to this post:

Tweet This!

Remember to test the URL in your browser before adding it as a hyperlink to make sure formatting is correct.
