Hello Hello,


I found a website which has a really nice way to unlock free .pdf's.

the page basically says: Pay with a tweet or share to unlock the content.


I haven't seen something nice before.



my questions:

Does anyone know how this baby is called ?

I mean.. this feature.. that you have to unlock the download for a tweet or share .. 

has this feature a name ?


Or is it a plugin or service that could be used ?


I tried to find sutff like this on google.. but no luck..

would love to have this on my WordPress Page.


Thank you so much for any little help,

appreciate it !

Crass stupidity in my book, or maybe "Desperation"


Just a variation on the very old and mostly useless " random link swapping".

Well, if you have the right audience, having someone share your company's info to their followers could be helpful. Social media isn't completely useless. ;) (I've even got some sales that I can attribute to social media shares...)




I found this tutorial: http://tutorialzine....ownload-jquery/ Haven't looked over the whole thing to see how complicated it is, but there it is. There's also this one: http://www.labnol.or...ayments/27898/, which looks pretty straightforward.


I also found a service that has a limited free version (or paid for more features): paywithatweet.com.


If you Google something like how to implement pay with a tweet I'm sure you'll find a bunch more. :)

I will admit that I have paid with Tweets which I have then deleted. I have yet to download anything for which I paid a Tweet that I concluded was worth Tweeting about after reading the download.

Just another way to scam people into tweeting stuff that they don't necessarily want to tweet. Avoid it at all costs on your own website. If you can't get people to tweet your stuff of their own free will, then your stuff most likely sucks or isn't tweetable.
