Whenever anyone tweets on of my posts using the official tweet button, any special characters (specifically '&' and ''') show in the generated tweet as their HTML character code rather than the actual character.
For example, this recent post title:
"[Audio] Kill Me Softly & Jane Elizabeth Hanley’s ‘Catch’"
becomes this tweet:
[Audio] Kill Me Softly & Jane Elizabeth Hanley’s ‘Catch’: http://wp.me/ppJzX-5Sx via @electronicrumor"
This isn't an isolated event, this happens all the time, and, frankly, it's a disaster.
Once WordPress.com allow linking to Google+ Pages (which they've said is on the way) I was intending to move all my publicity publishing over to WordPress' Publicize feature (I currently use dlvr.it to push to Twitter and Facebook), but if all my post title get pushed as, essentially, gibberish (to those not versed in HTML), there's no way I'd let WordPress handle that.
There may be a setting somewhere I've missed, but I had a good old hunt around for some reason and couldn't find anything.
Due to the nature of my writing 'stopping using special characters' isn't an option (I need to differentiate between 'and' and '&' and insert titles in-between single quote marks)
Does this happen t anyone else?
The blog I need help with is electronicrumors.com.
