Remove “via @addtoany” from Twitter

Although I don’t do Twitter and even though I removed AddtoAny from my blog over a year ago, people have been stopping by here while searching for ways to remove “via @addtoany” from Twitter.

If you own the site on which AddtoAny is used, removing the “via” is pretty straightforward and documented. Just add some javascript in your pages to define a “template” for Twitter, like this:

var a2a_config = a2a_config || {};
a2a_config.templates = {
    twitter: "Interesting read: ${title} ${link}"
};

Be sure ${link}, and preferably ${title} are in the template. The rest is up to you, really. And while you’re at it, you might want to configure AddtoAny not to do 3rd party tracking?
