We all create content to get more people to read our posts. A great way to do this is to encourage readers to share your contents.

But it’s not easy as it sounds.

You need to be a bit creative to encourage people to share your contents. And one of the great ways is adding tweetable contents on your posts.

Yes, I am talking about those ‘Click to Tweet’ links and buttons.

And the great part is, it’s insanely easy to add ‘Click to Tweet’ link on your WordPress post/page.

There are some ‘Click to Tweet’ WordPress plugins out there. Here I’ll be sharing some of the best plugins to help you to decide the right one for you.

Let’s get started.

1. Better Click to Tweet

Better Click to Tweet is the most popular click to tweet plugin for WordPress. It is a free plugin created by Ben Meredith, and it is available on the WordPress plugins directory.

It can be used as a shortcode or as a block in the Gutenberg editor.

Here are some of the features of this plugin:

  • Simple to use with not too many options. You can change the Twitter username, use short URLs, remove or replace the “via@username” on each tweet box.
  • But don’t mistake simple with not being a powerful one. There is a power user guide to show you all the options to make the plugin appear as you want. You could choose to remove URL completely, change it, make links nofollow, have custom templates to be used, change the anchor text, and more.

This plugin was intended to get you up and running in a few minutes. If you want the extra features, you could do with the extra shortcodes to add in your tweet section to make it as you want.

Here is an example of how it appears in the middle of a post

It is very easy to add the block in the Gutenberg editor once you install the plugin. And you have control over 4 settings:

  • Twitter username to add at the end of the tweet

Things To Know Before Choosing This Plugin

  • Until now, this plugin can’t be used with the Gutenberg editor, so you won’t be able to use it if you have version 5.0 or more, and you intend to use the Gutenberg editor. If that is the case, Ultimate Blocks may be an alternative for you.
  • If you use the classic editor, this plugin is a great one to consider. Other than that, don’t consider it.

4. Social Snap

Social Snap is a premium plugin created to help you with everything related to driving more traffic from social media and increasing your engagement.

That means everything from:

  • helping your visitors share your posts more to increase traffic,
  • a social auto poster to automatically post on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter when you publish new content,
  • displaying your social links while displaying followers count for extra credibility,
  • advanced analytics to know what is shared by your audience,
  • the ability to boost old posts by automatically sharing them without much work from you,
  • and of course, a beautiful click to tweet box that drives more tweets and shares to your site.

And their click to tweet box is a powerful one.

You can start by playing with the default settings to make them suit your needs. That means choosing the style, choosing whether to include “via@username” or not, include page link or not, hide on mobile or not, and related accounts to add… up to 2 can be added.

After that, you can simply click on the button in the classic editor and add the tweet content, quote content (if you don’t want to show via@ or something like that), and the page link.

You could also add their block on the Gutenberg editor, and you’ll get access to the same features.

Did I forget to mention that you could create your custom appearance by playing with the additional CSS section and changing the CSS to match your needs? Just change the color code, and you have your new style.

Here are the styles already available that you could choose from. This is how the click to tweet boxes could appear on your site.
