When clicking the Twitter share button on the bottom of posts, it pops up with @OutdoorLatino but it should be @LatinoOutdoors. Thoughts? Solutions! Help please.
The blog I need help with is latinooutdoors.org.
Hi Jose – This should be fixed now. :)

Hi Jose – Please update the Twitter username toward the bottom of Settings->Sharing here:
If it still doesn’t change after you’ve changed it there, let me know.
I deleted and re-entered the Twitter username, but… it still shows @vallartaescapes when I go to tweet a blog post, help, please!
Ok, it should be fixed now. Sorry about that.
Thank you very much, now… can you help me with the next problem which is when I tweet the posting the author shows up as someone else, Robert Seco @vallartaescapes
Hi there – Can you describe a bit more what you mean? When I use the Twitter sharing button on one of your posts, it just shows as ” via @galvanrestate”
Can you please make a screenshot of what you’re seeing? Here are instructions for how to make a screenshot: http://en.support.wordpress.com/make-a-screenshot/
You can upload it to your blog’s Media Library and I can look at it there.
O.K., screenshot taken, uploaded to my blog’s Media Library so you can look at it there. Thank you.
I used both IE11 and Fireox 26 and this is what I get when sharing Villa Las Tortugas – For Rent – en Playa Las Tortugas http://wp.me/p4bkxT-6i via @galvanrestate
Yes, but… when you tweet the blog post and click on View Summary the tweet shows:
View this content on WordPress.com’s website
Villa Las Tortugas – For Rent – en Playa Las Tortugas
By Robert Seco @VallartaEscapes
Ah, ok. Thanks for the screenshot. I think that that author information reflects the display name and Twitter handle that was there at at the time the post was published. There’s no way to change it, but it should reflect the correct one for posts you publish going forward.
Let me know if it doesn’t.
Thank you so much for your clear cut help. I understand the problem and will take care of it from here.
Now… how do I apply for a job like yours? I love what you do.
Thank you so much. I will check out the site. Happy New Year!
Hi, I’m trying to link a twitter account to wordpress but it seems to use the wrong username “via @joshballs93” despite it being linked up correctly (it posts to the correct twitter: @GdGooseGraphics) any ideas on how I might solve this?
Blog URL is goodgoosegraphics.wordpress.com
In Settings->Sharing here:
Scroll down to the bottom where you’ll see ‘Twitter username to include in tweets when people share using the Twitter button.’ It’s still got your old one there. Update it to the new and save your changes, and let me know if that fixes this. :)
Thanks so much, all sorted
