Developers like Tweet Button, want better analytics

Juan Carlos Perez | March 4, 2011
Developers and publishers who have adopted Twitter's Tweet Button say the tool is beneficial in letting their site readers and application users conveniently share links on Twitter, but that some features can be improved, including its analytics data and mobile functionality.

"Currently, the Tweet Button doesn't really offer anything except display the count of the number of times a URL has been shared on Twitter," Shetty said.

Meanwhile, Hendra Kieran, a system engineer at Affle, maker of the Pinch iMessenger mobile messaging application, is also satisfied with the Tweet Button but finds that its rendering and functionality fall short in mobile devices, a complaint echoed by other developers in online discussion forums.

"When it is used to share a tweet, it will take the user to a non-mobile-friendly page in Twitter so users have to zoom in to get a better view of the page," Kieran said.

Twitter didn't respond to requests for comment about the Tweet Button.
