I turned to Share and Follow after it was pointed out to me that the “share” WordPress plugin I was using didn’t automatically shorten URLs when readers wanted to share my posts on Twitter. That’s not good.
My Web-site builder recommended Share and Follow, which is a free (donations accepted), feature-rich, easy-to-use WordPress plugin. Created by phat-reaction in Amsterdam, Share and Follow uses bit.ly for the shortening of URLs, allows for great control over the “share” presentation, including choice of icon, icon + text, or text only. I also appreciate “Twitter suffix,” which enables the auto adding of “via @twittername”.
Share and Follow also has an excellent how-to video that I used when getting started. I’m not alone in my admiration of Share and Follow: it carries a 4.5-star rating from WordPress users, and that’s after 100 ratings.
