Twitter to launch its own tweet buttonBy Hanleigh Daniels 11 August 2010 | Categories: news
Popular micro blogging site Twitter is reportedly launching its own tweet button, which will function in a similar way to Facebook’s “Like” button.
According to Mashable, details about this new button are still vague, but “from what we can tell, the Tweet Button is designed to be the most comprehensive counter of retweets and shares across Twitter’s network.”
There are already similar buttons on the net from third party developers, such as Tweetmeme, which is service that aggregates all the popular links on Twitter in order to establish which links are popular. According to techradar.com, “Twitter is hoping that its official button will be the most accurate yet, offering precise numbers of those who have retweeted articles online.”
This single line of code can be added to any website and comes in three size versions (110×20, 55×20, 55×63) with five different settings for customisation.
