changing the @addthis share on twitter link

Post by Guest on October 18th 2010, 2:57 am

Everytime I share a post on my forum with twitter it always says @addthis at the end of it. How can I change the @addthis to MY forums twitter account link automatically?

when you click "share" on a topic and choose to share it on twitter, "@addthis" appears at the end of the message before you officially post it on twitter. The "@addthis" is the name of some other companys twitter account. I have to change it with "@The_EN" which is my forums twitter account.

All it is, is a link to the user who created the twitter post. I'm just wonder if I can change the default settings from "@addthis" to "@The_EN".

**EDIT: this is the link to the company http://www.addthis.com/features?utm_source=hm&utm_medium=link&utm_content=WhatsThis_orig&utm_campaign=AT_features

It wouldn't be possible. But you can always create a tweet button on Twitter and add it to your forum and have it to to your account.

Do you mean provide a direct link to my twitter page? Or will it work the same as the share feature? Because I want it to function as a "share this post" button.

if you have a twitter account log in to your twitter and then try that share button again and it will prompt you to post the message + link of the topic with the "@addthis" in that message. check it out

Hi,

I don't think this is possible, but I do think this is a mistake by the techs/twitter so I think it would require their intervention, however, because I don't have a twitter any more, I can't check it for myself.
The text "@addthis" definitely shouldn't be adding it to your text automatically?

Let's see what Mario/Sanket has to say about this though?

I just registered to say it is possible:

change your tweet code for

<a class="addthis_button_tweet" tw:via="YOURTWITTERUSER"></a>
