This question has a double quote in the title which causes the Twitter pop-up to throw an error. Once I removed the quotation marks it worked just fine.

  • hmm, this is correctly URL encoded to %22custom%22 = "custom" – Jeff Atwood Mar 25 '11 at 5:35
  • The url I'm getting when I click the tweet button: twitter.com/intent/… Maybe it is a chrome issue: imgur.com/2oI5p – thunsaker Mar 25 '11 at 5:38
  • Not a Chrome issue. I'm also seeing it with Firefox 4 – ale Mar 25 '11 at 12:37
  • Changed them to single quotes and it works fine. – ale Mar 25 '11 at 12:38
  • Seems to be working now. – ale Jan 9 '14 at 15:45

Looks like Twitter is broken - even their own tweet button builder won't work with text that contains a quote. http://twitter.com/about/resources/tweetbutton

  • Yep, I've been having to manually HTML-ize special characters. – Matthew Read Mar 28 '11 at 13:41
