How did you do it?
I took fox's Twitter plugin, changed the sharing URL and changed everything that said "twitter" or "tweet" to "buffer". Even stuff that I didn't understand. And I made an icon.

Are you really that retarded?
Yes. I know nothing of JS or PHP. This was an utterly idiotic shot in the dark.

Then why should it work?
Because I tested it with different browsers, being logged in and out of Buffer, and everything worked as expected.

Should I trust you?
Hell no. If you have the slightest knowledge of PHP and JS, please take a look at the code. Trust this plugin under your own responsibility until someone believably checks that nothing breaks.

Bears and bans welcome. :mrgreen:

Since the original plugin (and repo) is long gone, I made a replacement based on my Hootsuite plugin. Fair warning: I made it for another user on my install, not myself, so I won't be doing a bunch of maintenance on it.
