Want people to tweet your message simply by clicking a link? Don’t want to sign up for a service? DIY and follow these 3 steps.

  1. write the message that you would like to be tweeted
  2. use a URL Decoder/Encoder to turn your message into a encoded URL which you will use in step 3 (it’s easy, just click a button)
  3. use Twitter’s developers URL https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=Hello%20world and replace “Hello%20world” with the encoded URL from step 2 … DONE!

You can also use http://bit.ly if you want to shorten the URL and/or capture basic analytics! For example.

  • The message I want people to be able to click to tweet is: “Want people to tweet your message simply by clicking a link? Don’t want to sign up for a service? DIY Click to Tweet. http://bit.ly/1DqSTaC
  • Run it through the decoder in step 2 and get:
"Want%20people%20to%20tweet%20your%20message%20simply%20by%20clicking%20a%20link%3F%20Don%27t%20want%20to%20sign%20up%20for%20a%20service%3F%20DIY%20Click%20to%20Tweet.%20http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F1DqSTaC"
  • Combine Twitter’s tweet URL from step 3 and your encoded text from step 2 to get the following (click here test it out)
https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=Want%20people%20to%20tweet%20your%20message%20simply%20by%20clicking%20a%20link%3F%20Don%27t%20want%20to%20sign%20up%20for%20a%20service%3F%20DIY%20Click%20to%20Tweet%20http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F1DqSTaC
