This post is going to show you how easy it is to include a “tweet this” quote in your blog posts without using a plugin. Plugins are great, but they aren’t always necessary and can slow down your site’s load speed. By using the click to tweet’s free basic plan you will be able to quickly add tweet this quotes to your posts and be able to control the design of the tweet.
The end result of your tweet this quote will look something like this:
Learn how to include a “tweet this” quote in your blog posts! It’s super easy.
Go ahead and test it out 😉
Let’s get started. Head over to clicktotweet.com and click to sign in with Twitter. Twitter will ask you to authorize the app and then you are in!
With the free version, you only get 5 dynamic tweet quotes, but I don’t really think they are necessary. The basic links work just fine and you can create as many as you’d like.
Fill out what you want the tweet to say and then click generate basic link.
Copy that link and then head to your blog.
In your post, write the quote you want readers to tweet and then add something like “click to tweet”, “tweet this”, etc. Highlight the tweet this text and then create a link. Paste your link in the URL field.
When readers click the link, a new tab pops up with the quote.
Add style to your Tweet Quotes
