How to Add a Tweet Button to Your Survey

How to Add a Tweet Button to Your Survey
We love a good question.

After all, questions are our business. So when Dan Armstrong, GM of, asked us…

We had to answer.

After a little research and a bit of testing, we found that it’s actually pretty easy to add a “Tweet” button to the end of your survey, thanks to instructions provided by the Twitter team.

Follow these steps:
  1. Enable HTML in your account
  2. Select the descriptive question type
  3. Paste in this iframe code:
    < iframe allowtransparency=”true” frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no” src=” my cool survey please!&count=horizontal” style=”width:130px; height:50px;”></iframe>
  4. Customize with your own survey URL, twitter handle, and text:

Your respondents will see the Tweet button below (we added some text above to make it really clear).

When they click on it, they’ll be asked to log in to Twitter (if they aren’t already) and the Tweet will be pre-populated with the URL, text and handle you included. They can edit it if they like before they share with their followers.

See it in action:

    I keep getting a “bad request” error when using the iframe code.
    Can you guys help me out?

  • Marielle

    Hi Anne. I found the solution. When you copy the iframe code above, the quotes (”) are the problem. They are like this: ”, and in HTLM-code, they should be like this: “. Just a small difference. Thanks anyway!

    • Hi Marielle–so glad you found a solution! Thanks for sharing what it is. I’ll see if we can fix our code so when you copy and past it includes the right quote marks. We’d love to see your survey when it’s ready so feel free to share it.

    I tried to add a tweet button to survey monkey. I got the code from twitter resource, but it’s not populating with the pre-tweet:

    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few
    months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

    • Kayte K

      Hi Jessie- we haven’t had any issues over here. Sorry to hear of your trouble! We’d recommend checking the WordPress forums as a starting place. Good luck!

    came about earlier! I bookmarked it.

    bit of excellent knowledge. Thanks ,Rolland

  • Aaron

    Howdy! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed
    to ask. Does running a well-established website such as yours require a
    massive amount work? I’m brand new to blogging however I do write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start
    a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and thoughts
    online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!

    • Kayte K

      Hi Aaron- thanks for the question. We’d suggest choosing the right blogging platform for you. We use WordPress. Good luck with your blog!

    • kaytek
