Tweet button does not let me amend text


Since last Friday, every time I’ve tried to tweet a story from our website, I haven’t been able to make any changes to the text (I usually add hash tags, delete parts of the headline and mention people). Is this a Twitter issue or a website issue, and how can we solve it?

Great, thanks Taylor, we’ll refer this to AddThis then.
