Tweet blockquote


#1

Hi. I recently created a blockquote tweet. The only problem is, the tweet only displays the site url, I want it to display the blockquote.

Here is an example:

Here is the code I used: http://www.billerickson.net/code/tweetable-blockquote/

How can I make the tweet include the blockquote?

The issue is that you’re not initializing the button widget, so the data-text attribute in the code isn’t being passed to the Web Intent.

To fix it, you can either change the script to set the text parameter of the /share URL—so it will always get passed through, or make sure you execute twttr.widgets.load() after your blockquotes have been initialized.

Hope that helps,

Ben
