Twitter has grown into a large community of microblogging lovers. It has been an active and tremendously growing social media platform since it’s development.
If you are a WordPress user, you can add a CTT (click to tweet) box inside your posts for making it easier to share your posts on Twitter.
I often use a clear call-to-action message at the end of some of my best articles like this one.

How to Create a Click To Tweet Box
If you choose to install Click to Tweet by Clicktotweet.com plugin or any other plugin listed here, follow this step by step. Firstly, from the settings go to click to tweet settings.
Enter your twitter username, and connect the plugin with your Twitter account. There are four more settings to consider which include design and hint box but since we can change it from our WordPress editor as well, skip this and save.
Go to any of your posts and click on the Click to Tweet icon. This will open a new popup window which will let you make your new Click to tweet box. In the above section, there are two blanks where one is for a message you would like to show in the blog post box and the other the message you would like to be tweeted.
They don’t need to be the same so you can enter two different call-to-action messages in both of them.
Below that remember to check the “include twitter username” and “include a link back to post” option.
Switch to the design section and select a new box design. There are more than 20 of them. I prefer the blue one. So once you have selected a design hit the insert new CTT button and you are done.
The same procedure goes for every plugin listed above.
For social warfare users, it becomes fairly limited to box themes which are best if you are looking to add boxes only rather than tweet hints and author bio-design. Simply click on the black twitter icon on your editor and enter your message you would like to get tweets and save.
That’s it. I hope the click to tweet plugins on this list is doing great for you. I look forward to hearing about your experience in the comments section below.
