Tweet This!

Yesterday, I rolled out a new design for this website.  During the design phase of this site I put a lot of thought into how the design would work.  Being a Twitter addict, I knew early on that I wanted to incorporate Twitter into as much of this site as possible.  There are a number of plug-ins that can be used to add a Twitter ID into the comments or even track tweets about a particular post.  I liked just about all these plug-ins but I really loved the Tweet This feature, a plug-in that you could use to post a tweet by simply clicking on an icon.

I noticed that some other sites like Smashing Magazine were using the Tweet This feature but I wanted a really cool, really unique icon of my own, not just a standard Twitter Bird.  So I contacted Ryan Putnam from Vectips (@vectips)and asked if he could help.  Ryan did an amazing job and was able to turn around this fantastic-looking little Twitter bird within just a few days.  Anyhow, feel free to click on this little guy as much as you like!  I really appreciate the help with my articles and the Twitter bird loves to be clicked!
