    Hi Virginia, thanks for your comments.  What you say is very true.  Twitter is one of the most popular platforms out there right now.  But the best part about adding twitter buttons to your website is the fact that you are enabling your visitors to “share” your content with their own network of followers.  This, in turn, should provide you with more traffic as your content spreads across the internet.  So once you learn how to make a website with IconoSites, we highly recommend adding this feature.

    Yes! the shares are very important too and it can bring lots of people to a site.  This is news to me cause I didn´t know there was a web builder helping people to add this tool.

    Hi Marcus, when you make a web page with twitter buttons, the activity from your visitors is sure to increase and so is your traffic.  Just how much of an impact it has depends on how good your content is.  But the presence of the twitter button gives your visitors an easy and instant way to share your content with one single click.
