How to “Like” Tweets on Twitter

Facebook lets you “Like” a profile, page, event, status update or comment right? We can't do that on Twitter. But there's a workaround. Jesse Stay, The "Social" Geek, wrote a simple browser extension that you can install on Chrome, IE or Firefox, which allows you to “Like” a tweet on Twitter.

It's called “TwitterBook.” Hmmm...

In addition to the “retweet”, “favorite”, and “reply” links you see when you mouse over a Tweet, you can also now “like” the Tweet as well, wrote Stay in his blog Stay N´ Alive.

How to “Like” Tweets on Twitter? How does it work?
  • Just install the extension, which you can download from here.
  • The “Like” button and others show up when you hover over a tweet.
  • “Liked” tweets will also be automatically posted to your Facebook profile. It's like hitting two birds with one stone.
Okay, after this post I am going to try the plugin and will update this post for feedback.

Special thanks to TechCrunch for the lead.

  • I think Stay needs to improve the plugin; it does not work on Firefox 3.6.12.
  • It crashes Chrome 7.0.517.44.
  • It does not redirect you back to Twitter after authorizing app access in your Facebook account.
  • It disables functionality of Twitter buttons on websites.
  • In other words, it's buggy.
