Click to Tweet

Social Rocket's Click to Tweet builder allows you to create and save multiple Click to Tweet styles, which can then be used in your posts and pages.

Click to Tweet Preview

The settings screen for the Click to Tweet builder includes a preview at the top of the screen. The preview will update instantly to reflect your changes. This is a handy tool to make sure the style looks the way you want before you save it.

Adding a Click to Tweet to a Post or Page

Using a Shortcode

To manually add a Click to Tweet via shortcode, please see the [socialrocket-tweet] shortcode documentation.

Using the Classic Editor

In the Classic Editor, look for the icon shaped like the Twitter bird and click to insert a Click to Tweet in the editor box. A modal will display the shortcode builder:

Tweet to be shared on Twitter: This is the text that will be tweeted when someone uses the Click to Tweet.

Quote to be displayed on your page: The quote displayed on the Click to Tweet. This may or may not be the same as the tweet to be shared; for example, you may display a short quote but include a longer one in the actual tweet.

Include the URL: Whether or not to include the URL of the post or page (default is yes).

Include "via": Whether to include "via @yourusername" in the tweet (default is yes).

Display Style: This dropdown will show all your saved Click to Tweet styles. You can choose the one you want to use for any Click to Tweet.

Custom URL: If you'd like the Click to Tweet to share a URL other than the current post or page, enter the URL here.

Custom Via: If you'd like to attribute this quote to a user other than your site default Twitter name, enter the Twitter name here.

Custom CSS class (optional): If you'd like to add more styling to an individual Click to Tweet, you can add a class here, then add CSS rules for that class in your theme stylesheet or wherever you typically add custom CSS code.
