Description: The only Click To Tweet plugin to add translation support. The only Click To Tweet plugin to take into account your Twitter username's length in truncating long tweets, or to correctly take into account non-Roman characters.

= What are the differences between this plugin and Click To Tweet by Todaymade? =
96
I originally was planning on contacting Justin at Todaymade to suggest some improvements to the code on his plugin, and in the midst of that, his plugin was unexpectedly pulled from the official repository, for having a (frowned upon) "Powered By" link. So, I set about fully overhauling the plugin.
97
98
- Since that time Justin and the team over at Todaymade have rereleased a version of their plugin without the "Powered By" link. His plugin (which was originally released before the advent of the shortcode API) still doesn't use it, and for that reason is less secure than mine. For him to change to support the shortcode API is a more comlicated issue, as he'll need to still provide support for how his plugin currently handles the pseudo-shortcode system, or risk breaking every current user's website.
99
100
- The bottom line for an end user is that both plugins are great, with the main difference being mine using the official WordPress shortcode API, and some other minor tweaks to the code. For example, my plugin adds some calculation based on the length of your Twitter handle to prevent truncated tweets from still being over 140 characters.

102
- Also from an end user perspective, I am more active in the support forums than Justin (who has a paid product to support, which justifiably takes more of his time and energy), and you can count on my response and resolution to your issues! <strong>To switch from Justin's plugin to mine, see the tutorial at [BenandJacq.com](http://benlikes.us/8o "migrate to Better Click To Tweet")</strong>
