It appears that (Twitter) shortened links are not auto-hyperlinked whilst non-shortened links are.

Is there a patch to make all links hyperlinked - therefore clickable?

Never used this plugin. WordPress has a function called make_clickable() which might help you.


$string = "This is a long text that contains some links like http://www.wordpress.org and http://www.wordpress.com .";
echo make_clickable($string); 


This is a long text that contains some links like <a href="http://www.wordpress.org" rel="nofollow">http://www.wordpress.org</a> and <a href="http://www.wordpress.com" rel="nofollow">http://www.wordpress.com</a> .
  • Brilliant.I altered twitter-tools/views/tweet.php line 8 from 'echo wptexturize($content);' to 'echo wptexturize(make_clickable($content));'

  • Be aware that you'll lose modifications if you update the plugin.

  • You can propose the plugin author to add this option :)
