How to Add a Tweet This Button To Any Document

How do you make it easy to get people interested in helping you tell their friends and connections about what you’re doing?

Make it easy for them to tweet.

On a blog it’s easy to add a reweet or share button. I really recommend the Topsy Retweet Button because it keeps an accurate account of the retweets – something other buttons don’t always do well.  It also counts the tweets as trackbacks and comments tend to get started when a trackback is already recorded. But that’s not what this post is about.

How do you add a Tweet This Button in a document?

Use the Tweet text code:

http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=

and add the pre-populated tweet you want. Now I’ve added the following to a hypertext link in the footer of my Twitter Tips from @RevTrev. The text it’s linked to is “Tweet This Book – Thank You!
