The Fastest Ways to Share Anything on Twitter (FireFox and Google Chrome)

SMS Text

Let’s face it, we tweet a lot. Most of us have a great habit of sharing any interesting article we come across. And I am sure you are already aware of quite a few browser tricks to quickly grab the page URL, add a comment and share on Twitter.

Let me share a few more to add to your arsenal: the following browser extensions off the fastest way to tweet:

FireFox

Statusus

Statusus alows to quickly share any page you are currently reading from right-click context menu. Just select the phrase or a sentence you want to go in the update, right-click, select “Statusus” and choose whether you want the update to go to Twitter or Facebook.

Statusus FireFox

Drawbacks:

  • It clutters right-click menu (which, if you like playing with new addons, is likely to be already pretty much cluttered);
  • It lacks options and adds “via @Statusus” to your update:

Share from Statusus

TwitterBar

TwitterBar allows to update your Twitter stream right from the status bar. It adds a little bird icon to your browser URL bar – click it to post the current URL to Twitter (you can set it to confirm the update with you every time you click it):

TwitterBar

It works via Twitter auth, shortens the link and adds “Currently browsing” to it (by default):

Currently browsing

This behavior is customized via the tool settings though:

  • You can use any phase to go in the post as well as use $$ placeholder for the current page title:
  • You can select the shortener;

TwitterButton

Google Chrome

Twitter Share This Page

Twitter Share This Page: The fastest way I am aware of to share updates via Google Chrome which works from the Address bar icon:

  • Clicking the icon in the status bar brings you to Twitter share screen;
  • The tool automatically grabs the page title or the text you highlight on the page;
  • The tool automatically shortens the URL (which can be customized from the tool option):

Twitter share this page

All in all, it requires two clicks: one on the icon in the address bar and one to post the update:

Twitter share

Happy sharing!

    I like the Chrome App Cortex for fast sharing to Twitter, FB, Instapaper, and tumblr. It’s like the gunslinger’s choice of Chrome sharing tools.

    good but this is not the fastest way , there are other methods of this

  • Dr. Ogalinski

    In Chrome, there isn’t anything faster than Cortex. Period.

    For Firefox, there’s also Ubiquity where there is a command for Twitter

    The latest Google Toolbar has the Sharing Button which has a wide list of services to share to that includes Twitter! Why not use that instead if you are already using the Google Toolbar that is…
