Twitter Button Object Extension

Hi everyone,

This isn't going to be a world-changing extension for anyone probably, but I created an extension that easily puts a twitter button into your QVW.  It also allows you to set a hashtag and link value that is added to the tweet automatically.

It's very easy to set up.  Here are the properties:


These properties (obviously) control the hashtag and link values that will be automatically added to the tweet of the person who clicks the button.

When a twitter user clicks the button, a window will show up like this one which has the link and hash already in it:


Pretty simple.  Let me know if you have any problems with it.  I've also attached a technical brief of the extension which goes into some detail on the code.
