Safari Logo

Safari LogoI already once posted this in my Blog some time ago, but recently found out, that the previously used solution with doesn’t work anymore and even got a bit “suspicious”. In the meantime, Twitter is offering it’s own “Tweet this” popup window. I made use of this feature now for a shortcut button in the Safari bookmarks bar.

Thanks to the built in shortcut feature in Safari, you may use Command+[Number] to directly fire this new bookmark from within the bookmarks bar. In my example it would be Command+5 (the “-> Tweet this” button is at the 5th location in the bookmarks bar).

So here is the screencast with the How-to:

And this is the JavaScript code you will need to copy-paste as new bookmark in Safari:

[code lang="javascript"]"" + encodeURIComponent(location.href) + "&text=" + ((document.title) ? encodeURIComponent(document.title.replace(/^\s*|\s*$/g,"")):"") + "&tw_p=tweetbutton&url=" + encodeURIComponent(location.href), "Post to Twitter", "width=500, height=600, location, status, scrollbars, resizable");

By the way: this solution should also work on other web browsers such as Firefox or Chrome! Haven’t tested it though.
