How to add your Twitter Username to the AddThis Plugin

Tired of seeing “@AddThis” when you retweet content? Why not give the recognition your post deserves by updating the @AddThis field with your Twitter username. I’ll show you how. WATCH THE FULL VIDEO…

I added on a separate section towards the end of the video. I show you how to update a wp theme other than StudioPress. Plus I show you how to add more than one Twitter username in your code to work, too.

<a class=”addthis_button_tweet” tw:via=”twitter_username”></a>

var addthis_share = {
templates : {
twitter : “{{title}} {{url}} (via @twitter_username)”
