Here is a list of all available components you can use.


The url parameter contains an absolute HTTP or HTTPS URL to be shared on Twitter. If enabled, the URL will be shortened by selected link shortening service. If no URL is passed the current page URL will be used instead.

If no url is passed the active page URL will be used instead.

{tweetme url=http://www.tassos.gr}Your text goes here..{/tweetme}

via Pro only

A Twitter username to associate with the Tweet, such as your site's Twitter account. The provided username will be appended to the end of the Tweet with the text via @username. The Twitter account may appear in a list of recommended accounts to follow.

{tweetme via=tassosm}Your text goes here..{/tweetme}

hashtags Pro only

A comma-separated list of hashtags to be appended to default Tweet text. Omit a preceding # from each hashtag; the Tweet composer will automatically add the proper space-separated hashtag by language.
