Handling Twitter share response

Twitter  share is a way to allow user  to share website / tweet on the twitter . There are various methods to share data  on twitter , but here we are using  javascript method .We can customize tweet  using data attributes .
Followings are steps need to be followed
1) Add javascript in file . It would be better to add javascript  just below <body> .

window.twttr=(function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],t=window.twttr||{};if(d.getElementById(id))return;js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);t._e=[];t.ready=function(f){t._e.push(f);};return t;}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"));

2) Add below anchor tag  where you would like to render the Tweet Button .


<a class="twitter-share-button" href="https://twitter.com/share" data-size="small" data-url="http://knoldus.com" data-text="Hello" data-count="none" >Tweet</a>

To display count box (number of share) remove data-count=”none” attribute  or set data-count=”horizontal”
3) If you would like to handle the tweet response , you need to bind the twitter response by using following script .


<script src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js"></script>
twttr.events.bind('tweet' , function(event) {
  // do somethings here
alert("Tweet has been successfully posted");

twttr.events.bind method would be called when tweet posted successfully .
