Default App to pre-fill tweets?
I'm completely stumped!

I've seen a few links out there that send people back to their own Twitter profile, with a pre-filled Tweet in the update box. (For example, I just signed up for a teleseminar, and on the confirmation page, there was a link that said something like, "Share this teleseminar on Twitter" and when I clicked it, I was taken back to my profile and had a Tweet in my update box that said something like, "I just signed up for a teleseminar on blah, blah, blah - join me? http://tinyurl_link. All I had to do was click the Submit button, and it went out to all my followers.)

I've been searching all morning and can't figure out how to make this happen. Help, please!

It's not an app Tammi. It's html code. (minus the double-quotes on each end)

""<a href=”http://twitter.com/home?status=Currently reading http://www.yourdomain.com/post-url” title=”Click to share this post on Twitter”>Share on Twitter</a>""

Christina - you ROCK! It seems so simple now, but I would have never figured that out on my own. You just saved me a ton of headaches and frustration. Thanks so much!!

There's also a plug-in for WordPress called TweetMeme that will do the same thing for each blog post plus track how many times someone has tweeted. It also posts it to the Tweetmeme site where people go to look for interesting stuff to tweet.

Christina and Kimberly, you both continually blow me away with your depth of knowledge and helpfulness. It's just beyond cool, and I (and probably everyone) thank you profusely!

Another tool that is great for monitoring conversations about your company is Backtweets (I have @mmangen to thank for this one!). Just like Socialoomph it sends you an email when your name has been mentioned. I think I like Backtweets because it sends you an email much quicker than Socialoomph. Not sure if you are interested, but I wrote a post called Time Saving Twitter Tools that shares some of the tools that I have found to be quite helpful http://bit.ly/ixjn0. It is not a comprehensive list, but enough to get you started!

Yes most self hosted WordPress blogs have this plug in. There are like dozens of plug ins to choose from, making retweets painless
