Vertical Bar causing issues with tweet button



Perhaps I can get some insight here. When ever I have a vertical bar on a title, | , the twitter button will not work properly.

If I remove the | or replace it, it will tweet properly. It doesn’t seem like a big deal, but the problem is that I have 60 publishers on my website and adding more every day. It’s hard to crack a whip that big.

Here’s one with the vertical bar:
Here’s one without the vertical bar:

The tweet button can be found where it says Share, below the image.

Is this a known issue?


Have you tried encoding the “|” character as “%7C”? – it looks like you’re not encoding the URLs you’re generating – space characters are also “naked” rather than being encoded to “%20”
