Button is a new feature that Twitter rolled out on August 12, 2010. It is designed to make sharing information easier than ever regardless of where you are on the web. Formerly most news services used
Meme as way for their readers to tweet interesting news articles. According to Twitters blog however, they worked closely with
Meme to help develop this new button.
Button allows you to see at a glance how many people have tweeted a story. There are widgets available in three different styles that you can easily incorporate into blog posts or on your website. This simple to use button is designed to make content sharing easier than ever for recreational as well as business users. Power users will love the added flexibility that it allows them, including offering an option to follow the author of articles or the news service.
• New Features
You no longer have to worry about copying, pasting and shortening your links to share your work. Using the
Button allows you a one size fits all option that includes the title of what you are tweeting plus a built in shortening service. You can even include an option to allow those who tweet an article, blog post or news story to follow you after they have tweeted the item.
