I use Addthis service to share my posts, and when I heard that twitter had release the new tweet button count, I wanted to implement it right away! First I checked the Addthis website to see if they already had the new tweet button and I was glad finding out that it was there.
So, I grabbed the code for the new tweet button, I placed it into my website and everything was great. When I tested it and I noticed that at the end of the tweet it said: “via @addthis” instead of “via @Pureinfotech”, I didn’t like to have it this way, so I looked around in the web but I could not find anything in relation to this problem. Then I decided to contact Addthis support team to see if they could help, and they kindly supplied me with an answer.
So, here is the fix: If you are using Addthis to share your stories and at the end of the tweet says: “via @addthis” instead of your twitter account, do the following:
Use the template that they normally give you and at the tweet button line add the attribute “tw:via=yourName”, like this:
<a class=”addthis_button_tweet” tw:via=”yourName”></a>
Now, every time someone tweets one of your stories, it will be shared properly: @YourName.
