jQuery Plugin To Share Specific Text On Twitter - Tweetify

Tweetify is a jQuery social sharing plugin which displays a Twitter logo to tweet a specified piece of text within your article on Twitter.

How to use it:

1. Link up jQuery. To do that, add the following line to the <head> of you HTML file.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>

2. Copy the tweetify.min.js file from the "js" folder to your own project, and link it up with a script tag right before the closing body tag in your HTML tag.

<script src='js/tweetify.min.js'></script>

3. Copy the tweetify.css file from the plugin directory to your own project and link it up via a link tag in your header.

<link rel='stylesheet' href='css/tweetify.css'></link>

4. Mark the passages you'd like to be tweetify by wrapping them in a span tag with a class of 'tweetify'. That should look something like:

<span class='tweetify'>Some nice text</span>

5. Fire up the plugin. Either in a script tag at the bottom of your html file or in your own JavaScript, insert the following code:

  //options go here in the following format
  //option: 'value',

6. Default plugin options.


  // Defines a URL to be included in the Tweet. 
  // Defaults to the url of the page the plugin in used on.
  url: encodeURIComponent( window.location.href ),

  // Defines a twitter handle to be included in the Tweet. 
  // Will show up as 'via @yourhandle'.
  via: '',

  // Defines a Twitter handle that the user will be suggested to follow after he sends off his Tweet.
  related: '',

  // Defines one or more hashtags to be appended to the Tweet.
  hashtag: ''
