How to Tag Your Twitter Handle Automatically to Every Tweet Made with AddThis Tweet Button on Your Blog/Website?


Social sharing, as we discussed in previous article is one of the important strategies to drive traffic to your website from social media networks. We generally use third party social sharing plugins to let readers share and tweet the article links on to their social media profiles.

Do you think it is good enough to drive traffic your site? It may be, but it is not best enough strategy yet.

Let’s say twitter! When someone tweets your article link using the tweet button under it, it will go around the world of twitter and there is no doubt about it. Just think for a second, how good it would be if you could brand/promote your twitter handle to increase the followers with every reader’s tweet! awesome isn’t it?

tagging-twitter-handleLet’s see how can we enable this twitter handle tagging feature for the tweet button of AddThis social sharing plugin.

You need to have AddThis plugin installed with tweet button enabled on your website/blog to enable this feature. If you haven’t added AddThis yet, go to addthis.com and set it up first.

Secondly, add the either of the following scripts to the <body> section of your website i.e., right before </body> tag.

Twitter handle only:
<script type="text/javascript"> var addthis_share = addthis_share || {} addthis_share = { passthrough : { twitter: { via: "TWITTER USERNAME" } } } </script>

Replace TWITTER USERNAME with your twitter handle. For e.g., amfastech. This will be added to every tweet as @amfastech.

Text only:
<script type="text/javascript"> var addthis_share = addthis_share || {} addthis_share = { passthrough : { twitter: { text: "TEXT" } } } </script>

You can also add text that you wanted to be visible in every tweet made with the AddThis tweet button. For e.g., Amfas Tech. This will be added to every tweet as Amfas Tech.

Twitter handle with text:
<script type="text/javascript"> var addthis_share = addthis_share || {} addthis_share = { passthrough : { twitter: { via: "TWITTER USERNAME", text: "TEXT" } } } </script>

Replace TWITTER USERNAME and TEXT with the text of your choice. This will be added to every tweet as Follow us @amfastech.

Choose a style of your choice and increase your twitter followers with every tweet made from your blog/website.
