JS Plugin: Tweet


"Put twitter on your website with tweet!, an unobtrusive javascript plugin for jquery."


1. Get JQuery.

2. include jQuery and jquery.tweet.js files in your template's <head>.

<script language="javascript" src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script language="javascript" src="/tweet/jquery.tweet.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

3. Also in <head>, Initialize tweet! on page load with your Username and other options
<script type='text/javascript'>
