Tweet not working on IE8


#1

I have a button on my website to post to tweet, below is the href value of the button.
http://twitter.com/home?status=For+casual%2C+classic%2C+glamour+or+creative+style+it’s+time+for+hair+to+meet+wardrobe%2C+so+let+us+inspire+you! tiny URL

this works well in all browsers except some installation of IE8, not sure what is the problem.

Please help

Thanks in advance

Consider using a [node:183, title=“web intent”] instead (the way you’re calling the home page is out dated and not really valid). IE has some aggressive protections against the URL encoding of certain characters that other browsers do not. Make sure that you’re normalizing your text and encoding it appropriately before submission.
