Tweet control is in Section 2 of Station customization.
This feature allows users to easily tweet your spins together with a link to the playlist. You can try it out without enabling it using the Preview link.
When enabled, every spin in a public playlist has a tweet button like: . It is a simple link to twitter.com that opens a “Share a link on Twitter” form. The user may tweet whatever she likes but the form is pre-filled with a default text that mentions artist and song and a default URL to the playlist and spin.
Spinitron provides standard default text and URL or you can use custom values. Leave the custom fields blank to use the defaults.
The default text is:
Listening to: “Song Title” by Artist Name on FullID
Where FullID is one of the station identity strings in Section 1 of Station Customization
In the custom text you can use special tokens:
%an%is replaced by the artist name
%sn%by the song name
%dn%by the disk name, which might be the same as song name
- also, you might want to change FullID to your station's Twitter name.
For example, for something like the default above you could enter:
Listening to: “%sn%” by %an% on WXYZ
The default URL links to the playlist and spin on spinitron.com, something like:
In the custom URL you can use special tokens
%pi%is replaced by the playlist ID in Spinitron
%si%by the spin ID
For example, for the default URL above you could enter:
