Quick examples

Creating a custom tweet button

<?php
  require 'vendor/autoload.php';
  $tweet = new Sharer\Tweet;    

  $button = $tweet->button(
  'Hello Twitter!', // the tweet text
  'MyUsername', // via @MyUsername
  'http://mywebsite.com', // the tweet url
  Array(
    'hashtag1', 'hashtag2', 'hashtag3' // the tweet hashtags
  ),
  'large' // size of tweet button. This is an optional parameter. By default, the size of the button is 'small'
);

print $button;

To create a tweet button without url or without via username, just use [none] as a parameter.

$button = $tweet->button(
  'Hello Twitter!',
  '[none]',
  '[none]',
  Array(
    'hashtag1', 'hashtag2', 'hashtag3'
  )
);

To tweet the current page address, just use [this] as parameter in the URL

$button = $tweet->button(
  'Hello Twitter!',
  'MyUsername',
  '[this]', // will be the current URL
  Array(
    'hashtag1', 'hashtag2', 'hashtag3'
  )
);

Print (or echo) the $button variable to show the tweet button
