You can copy and paste the HTML markup for a Tweet button generated by the publish.twitter.com website into the template of your website.
A tweet event is triggered on your webpage when the Tweet button is tapped or clicked.
How to add a Tweet button to your website
To add a Tweet button to your website, you can use Twitter’s developer tools. Here are the general steps:
- Go to the Twitter developer website: https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/twitter-web-embedded-timelines/overview
- Click on the “Get started” button and log in with your Twitter account.
- In the developer dashboard, create a new project and select the “Website” option.
- In the project settings, you can configure the settings for your Tweet button, such as the text that will be pre-populated in the tweet and the text that will be displayed on the button.
- Once your settings are configured, you can generate the code for the button. The code will include a script tag and a button tag that you can add to your website’s HTML.
- Add the generated code to your website’s HTML where you want the button to appear.
- Your website visitors will now be able to click the button to easily share a tweet linking to your website.
Note: This is the basic process. You can also customize the appearance of the button, the text to pre-populate in the tweet and other settings in the developer dashboard.
Tweet text components
In a Tweet composer, a text parameter is pre-selected. With a simple delete command, the Tweet’s author can quickly delete the text.
If the text argument isn’t explicitly set, the title> element of the webpage may be used to automatically fill it.
The absolute HTTP or HTTPS URL to be shared on Twitter is contained in the url argument. The published Tweet will automatically shorten the shared URL. For a shared URL, a Card might show up.
When not explicitly set, the location.href of the page or a canonical link element (link rel=”canonical”>) may automatically fill the url parameter.
Use the hashtags argument to add a comma-separated list of hashtags to a Tweet. Each hashtag doesn’t need to have a leading “#”; the Tweet composer will add the appropriate language-specific hashtag automatically.
Use the through parameter to link a Twitter username to the source of a Tweet. The attribution will be written in the language of the Tweet’s author as “through @username” in the Tweet.
A link or anchor element linked to a Twitter profile page with a me relationship token may automatically populate a via parameter.
